Open Local News with Google Maps


n0tice is an open community platform using Google Maps to help bring you local news, events and listings.

When you first load n0tice the application asks to detect your location. If you agree to share your location a Google Map will open showing nearby news. You can then zoom in or out to see more general or more precise news to your location.

You can use n0tice to post your own news, events and listings and the first person to post in a particular city becomes the Editor of that city. You can also become the Editor of a city by becoming the most active poster in the city.

Users can add links to any story or post a photo or embed a video to improve the post. n0tice also comes with both read and write API's.
