Google Map Hack Blog

How many buzz words can you get in one title?

On Wednesday 29 June Google released an API for their Google Map service. One week later a blog came up with postings for hacks using this API. Some are what you would expect...where to eat in Des Moines. But there's one for tracking the location where each runner is injured in the Running of the Bulls -- San Fermin, Spain; one for showing the location of recent earthquakes in North America and; the creepiest of all, one that shows you where sex offenders are living in the state of Georgia, USA by zip code.
