Here are three things that I like about WikiMapia :
- Â It’s brings together the excellence of Google Maps and the social power of Wiki.Â The results are better than anywhere else.Â Even Cyprus, which usually gets little attention on the web, is covered pretty good.
- It’s easy to add landmarks and notes.Â That’s something I really missed so far on Google Maps, where I can just see maps and search for geographical locations.Â With WikiMapia, I can find something, mark it down with the notes, and then send the link to somebody else.Â I won’t need to provide the instructions like “find two major roads crossing at the bottom of this map and then follow the one that goes up until second turn on the right. You’ll see a sort of triangular white building.Â That’s our office” any more.Â Just a link.
- WikiMapia pages score pretty good inÂ Google search results (I hope it doesn’t sound like invitation to spammers).Â To find map to our offices now all I need to do is search for brief company name – “mmvirtual“.Â The map link is the second result after our own web site.
