Google Maps News Mashups AP News
Over at the GoogleMaps Mania, they point to an interesting tool from 81nassau.com that combines information from Google Maps, Yahoo and the Associated Press to create an interactive news map that plots the ten latest stories from the AP RSS feed. The author provides information as to how the site has been created and provides code examples for those interested in using the code to create additional tools based on his work. I was thinking it would be interesting to replace the AP News aspect of the tool with data from our student information system. With a bit of work we could create a tool that took student absence information and plotted it on a map. Lots of possibilities...
