Mapbuzz - Mapping Your City UGC-Style

Posted on 3.03.2008
Want to know check out what's happening in your neighborhood - and where? MapBuzz does just that.

It's a simple concept. Users generate individual maps based on their own criteria and share them with the rest of the community. For instance, you might find a map of the best meals in Denver under $15, or the most overrated restaurants subject to that user's opinion, of course. There are categories of maps including nightlife, restaurants, hiking, Denver, Boulder ... did I mention this sight is popular in Colorado?

Of course, there are the requisite user profiles where you can share maps, comment on others' maps, etc. You can email your maps to friends as well and create communities.

Right now, there's not enough traffic out there to make this a truly useful site. But if you jump in now, and if the site grows in popularity, you could just become an influencer in your geographic area and use that to your advantage. One thing I would like to see is the ability to embed your maps in your blog or website.
