Wikipedia + Google Maps = Wikimapia and one hell of a real estate resource

So.....soon to be Pros, here's a new tool for you to add to your belt:  WikiMapia
Wikipedia (one of the most useful reference pages on the net) mashed up with Google Maps this week. The site is intended to be a Wikipedia-like reference for the planet earth (we all know where that is) .Wikimapia uses a feature similar to the 'notes' feature on Flickr, called "call-outs" which you can add on top of the area of the map you are referencing. You can search for information about an area without even leaving the crib!

ALSO...Last week, Microsoft (we all know who that is) released a similar map program called Map Cruncher

Have fun with these...and, map something!

Very cool. Real Web 2.0 type stuff. What drew my attention was the mention of wikipedia. Wanted to draw your attention to another free service that launched last month that I also thought was cool. Also is a kind of Wikipedia for real estate, not maps like yours, but content more like wikipedia itself. It is located at www.RealEstateWiki.com. Maybe you guys could hook up and work together.
