PixyCity is a new location based service using Google Maps to share and discover local news and events.
PixyCity uses Google Maps to create city communities where people can meet, talk and inform others. PixyCity is crowd-sourcing this local news and event data and uses Karma points to encourage user contributions.
For every event or news item added to PixyCity users earn 'Karma points'. Karma points can then be used to buy poster and billboard space on PixyCity to advertise an event, website etc.
Using PixyCity you can save a location as your 'home' and you can define the area that you wish to view news and events for by using the map zoom controls.
