Hotties Promoted With Google Maps

hotornot_google_map.jpg

925M points to a little project by San Francisco-based software firm Frozen Bear which has combined the recent Google mapping capabilities with the find-a-hottie site Hot or Not. Just imagine if an enterprising marketer or brand fan put this sort of thing to good use. For example, a national map of Verizon wireless towers which actually showed where the towers where rather than where those fact marketing maps show them to be. Or an outdoor company like Clear Channel using it to allow outdoor board buyers to drill down to exact board locations. Oh well. For now, finding hotties appears to be a lot more fun.

The Google maps link ot the cellular towers has been done. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you which service is on third party towers. You can find the cell map at http://www.cellreception.com/towers/index.html

apartmentratings.com has done it at least for New York. Go to http://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/NY-New-York.html and click the Google Maps Search link at the top.

A little late to the party there, Adrants. Google map hacks for Hot or Not are old news. http://dc.metblogs.com/archives/2005/07/lonely_today.phtml

Beter ones for these days are ones for cheap gas, cheap apartments or distances travels in odd ways. Here's an article about them: http://dc.metblogs.com/archives/2005/08/google_hacks_th.phtml
