SXSW Venue Maps

The venues are divided into a number of categories with a separate map for each category:

PeopleBrowser is an online dashboard that helps you track your Twitter and other online social networking activity and the activity of your friends. The site has today released a version of the dashboard especially designed for those who are attending the SXSW Festival this week in Austin, Texas.
The special SXSW edition of PeopleBrowser has been designed to help festival visitors keep track of the huge number of events taking place. The dashboard uses Google Maps so that visitors can see where their friends are Twittering from. Tweets are tagged on the map using the member's picture. If you click on the picture a window opens showing that person's latest tweets.
Effing Music have created a Google Maps mashup of SXSW gigs in Austin this week. Check out this Google Maps Mania review of Effing Music from last Friday.
