GatheringPoint: Trying to Map Everything

GatheringPoint is an interesting application that displays a lot of local information on a Google Map.

It is difficult to give a full run down of what information that you can view on this map, as there is just so much on offer. Via a 'social layer' you can view nearby Tweets, the location of your Facebook friends, your Foursquare and Gowalla check-ins and photos submitted to Instagram.

If you want to know what is going on in your area you can view upcoming events from Meetup, Event Brite and Conference Hound. You can also use GatheringPoint to view all kinds of nearby points of interest and you can even find nearby deals and coupons.

If that wasn't enough you can also view traffic, YouTube videos and webcams.

Hi Keir, glad you found us. Thought you might like to know that GatheringPoint now has a free "Map Maker" tool to allow people to do their own mashups.
