New service opens: GeoCommons

    A new mapping service GeoCommons has opened. It allows you to create “smart maps” for your needs. The service is a “hybrid” of Google Maps and Swivel.

    The user can select the required part of the map and put data on it, for example, information on the average heat consumption in different states for several years, and indicate that only those states whose indicators exceed the specified should be displayed on the map. Then the map is converted to Google Earth format - KML or CSV. The service uses Google maps.

    For entertaining applications, the process of creating maps does not seem very simple and affordable, although such applications are quite possible.
