Voting 'Yes' or 'No' with Google Maps
As part of a campaign for more people to register as organ donors in the Netherlands a Google Map called Ja of Nee (Yes or No) has been created to gauge people's reactions to the idea of becoming a donor.
Users of the map can use Facebook connect to vote 'Yes' or 'No'. The results of the votes cast, broken down by town, can be viewed on a Google Map. The map markers themselves show the proportion of 'yes' and 'no' votes cast throughout the country. You can even click on the markers to get a more detailed breakdown of the results in each town.
