    Google Maps + Craigslist = amazing

    Google Maps w/housing

    This hack on Craigslist and GoogleMaps is amazing: the service places all the houses/apartments for rent/sale on Craigslist as waypoints on a Google Map, color-coded by price, with links to the Craigslist ads.

    .......................................WOW.

    Being a Geography dork, I shouldnt say that I am suprised at this....but I am. Not that I wouldve thought the technology wasnt there, just that I never thought people would really be bright enough to do stuff like this.

    Wow,thats great, wish they had it for my city too. That is a really great tool for people wanting to purchase or rent. Its also a good way to see housing prices in different cities.

    Very impressive. I wish this was implemented for craigslist Vancouver and craigslist Toronto. I don't see why they did not implement this for all of the supported cities... should be the same method each time.

    You know, when I click on "North Bay", it doesn't show my city but when I scroll over that direction, it does show it. (Of course, there is ONE measley listing!) So I wonder if it is available for some cities that it doesn't appear to be available for? Or will be in the future, when there is enough interest (or whatever)?
