Austin's Magical Music Map
The Austin Music Map is a great crowd-sourced interactive map of Austin's music scene. The map allows you to explore and listen to music from all around Austin. It also allows you to upload your own musical moments that you have experienced in the city.
Apart from the great music that is embedded on the map, what impresses me most about the Austin Music Map is the use of circular information windows and the map's magical interaction events. If you hover over any of the markers on the map an opaque circular info window appears. Click on the marker and the map itself becomes a circular page element which shrinks to reveal the selected artist or playlist in a full-screen window behind the map.
