GIS Helps Mapping Furman Faculty – Happy GIS Day!

Here is a neat way to visualize commonly available (public) information.  Each baloon in this map shows location of a Furman faculty residence.  Clicking on the baloon brings up information about the faculty like name, email, and photo if it was available on their website.

What can we do with a map such as this?  I can think of million ways this could be used – car pool arrangement with neighbors, new faculty using this to find best location to purchase a home so and so….

I challenge every one to come up with more use for this data, however crazy it is.  Post your ideas and opinions.
