In a world in which pictures speak louder than words, maps are becoming the starting point for people to find just about everything on the Internet. I believe Yahoo Local started this trend last year. Recently, Google began testing a service that lets you find a taxi wherever it's located in the field. Today, I stumbled upon this service createcd by Paul Rademacher. Rademacher has created a service that lets people look at a map to locate an area or neighborhood to find an apartment for rent or home to buy.
Rademacher uses Google's map technology as the starting point of his service, and integrates listings from Craigslist, a popular classified site which is minority owned by eBay. His service is not affiliated with either company, however.
The map helps apartment seekers and home buyers locate a particular area they want to live in. Think of the possibilites! Today stores, cars, homes, and tomorrow -- people.
