The Future

This my friends is the future… combining different types of data to create useful applications. A guy combined Craigslist houses for rent and sale with Google Maps. While not an every day application, it’s a great example of combining two types of data.

Imagine the other types of data you could show:

#1: US Census Figures
#2: Cars for sale
#3: Private aircraft with empty seats for sale
#4: People wanting a ride to/from somewhere
#5: Gas stations with best and worst pricing
#6: Coffee shops (haha)
#7: Office space availability
#8: Apartments

Can you think of any others?

  1. It would be cool to see…

    – Location of Public Transit (Buses/Streetcars/Subways)
    – Cabs
    – Wirelss Networks

  2. I really wish MLS used Google Maps like this… it is SO much clunkier to find stuff than this. I’ve already found a cute little house I like on here though!
