Eyefi's Arjan Scherpenisse has created MarktKijker (English: market watcher) which is a Google Maps mashup for the Dutch auctioning site Marktplaats.nl and ebay.nl. He explains: "The site has a feature called 'marktprikker' (market pointer), which plots on the map where the items searched for are located. If you register at the site and enter your zip code, the site sorts the result according to the nearest distance to your location. Marktplaats is the second most visited site after Google.nl among the approximately 16 million people in Holland.
