Find a Place to Meet on Google Maps

Mezzoman

Mezzoman is a Google Maps mashup that can help you find locations to meet friends, family, clients and/or business associates. Using the Google Maps API and Yelp, Mezzoman will find the midway point between your starting locations and recommend a restaurant or cafe where you could meet.

To find a meeting place simply enter your address and your friend’s address, type in a search term (like Sushi) and press Mezzoman Go. The results you get will be based on the exact midpoint between the two (or three) addresses. Mezzoman can also use your current GPS coordinates to make it quick and easy for you to meet with someone when you are not at a known address or are on the road. Additionally, you can add a contact’s address to any address field with the tap of a button.

Since the results are based on Yelp, you can easily find a top rated Sushi bar between your place and theirs, or a great place with Karaoke. You can also easily search for businesses, find it on a map, email a result to a friend or read reviews about it at Yelp.com. With Mezzoman, meeting in the middle has never been faster, easier or more convenient.

Version 3 of Mezzoman is coming soon. Mezzoman also has a Mobile App for webOS (Palm Pre). Gmail Contacts are not directly supported in version 0.5.2 but are supported in 0.5.3
