Donating by Location
This is a really nice idea for a map. GeoDonation is a map of locations in and around Montreal and Quebec where you can donate your unwanted possessions to charitable organizations. The map shows the location of 1,000 donation bins and other places where you can drop-off your unneeded clothes, electronic goods, sporting goods and books.
Among the really well designed elements on this mobile device optimized map is the use of color. Each category of donation has its own color. When you select a category from the map sidebar the markers on the map are filtered to show only the relevant donation bins. The markers on the map and the page heading also change to match the category's assigned color.
