Free idea

Someone should put together a Mapquest-like site but for pedestrians (or everyday hikers). It could give all the shortcuts and recommend cool things to look at on the way. Just start with your own street. Or hey, make an interface so everyone can map his or her own neighbourhood.

Aha. Yesterday, I visited an LCBO that isn't on the map. I'll have to mail in a correction.

Mark, your free idea reminds me of Marlena Zuber's map paintings and illustrations -- I can't find any online but there's a big folding one in the new uTOpia book from Coach House.

Bill, that is a staggeringly useful link.

Hi, which LCBO did you visit that wasn't on the map... Just curious cause I'll fix it if you give me the info.

Nadia: Yeah, you're right. And I think the site would be more of an artwork than anything else.

Janis: It's the one at 213 Danforth, between Broadview and Chester. I don't think I see it on the map. Nice site, by the way.

Also, there are a few Google-map-hack sites that are a bit like your idea -- Geobloggers springs to mind, but it's down for "tweaking" right now. The guy who runs it keeps a blog with an excellent collection of links to map-hacking sites; worth a look.
