The New York Times website is using google maps to organise reader’s comments about the transportation system strike.
Want to know how to get from where you live to work, what the bus queues are like, or whether a particular station is open? Just find your location on the map and see what your neighbours are saying. It looks like the map is being created manually – users are being asked to email their stories, including their zip code, for possible inclusion. Still, it’s a great use of social mapping.
