Crazy and/or Unique Local Content Maps for Your Blog

Screen shot 2010-03-16 at 7.04.38 AMGoogle Maps Mania is a mashup-of mash-ups.  The site collects and displays map mash-ups created with the Google map API.  There are maps of just about anything; historical spots, celebrities, beer spots, milk farms.  You name it, it’s probably there.  Embedding some unique or useful maps into your blog provides engaging content for your readers.

You can also use Google Maps to create your own maps of your local community, the sky is the limit for content.

Many of the maps are very local specific.  Here a are a few of the more interesting ones:

Bonus: Lord of the Rings Map (for geeks like me)

I bet with a little searching, you will find more than one map for your blog readers.  If you create maps, submit them to GoogleMapsMania for added exposure.
