Plaxo Real Time Google Map


WorldPulse is a real-time, animated Google Map of updates people have made on Plaxo. Plaxo's 'Pulse' is a personal news page that helps you keep up-to-date with what your family, friends, and business connections are choosing to share on the web. Whenever people you know do anything online, like post photos, write on their blogs, or update their wish lists, you can see it all in Pulse.

Every second the WorldPulse map animates an event picked from a long list of actions being taken by Pulse members at that moment. Each event is given a color-coded pin on the world map. WorldPulse adds 200 map markers to the map before it starts replacing the first marker added, so that there is a continual stream of markers being animated and added to the map.
