Web 2.0 at it’s best – repurposing and mashing up technologies. WalkJogRun.net is a Google Maps mashup that allows you to mark running or walking trails in your area. Anyone in the US & UK can then find trails in their area. It’s built on trust, that everyone will act responsibly and mark real trails in their areas. It’s consumer driven, the site owner provides the infrastructure, but the users create the content. It’s well designed, providing value adding features in a simple way.
Other things I like:
- It gives all the distances
- You can upload trails to Google Earth
- You can email a trail to a friend
- They’ve got a great logo
