While google maps is plenty handy, there is a new map on the horizon called A People Map.

It is an entertaining thing to try. A People Map derives its data from wikipedia and instead of showing local attractions or restaurants or traffic and such, what one sees instead is the name of the most searched or ‘wikipedia-ed’ person from an area, city or state.

They could have been born there, lived there, or made their name there; any kind of association would do as long as they are the most searched people in the area.

Furthermore, if one hovers on the name then related information about the person pops up, in particular, what they are famous for.

TO DO: Use The People Map to find out the most wikipedia’ed people in the area.
