WikiMapia: USA / Florida / Shalimar

WikiMapia: USA / Florida / Shalimar:

Here's a cool site. It takes Google Earth data and overlay's a wiki: any site visitor can draw a rectangle on the satellite map and tag a location. Go to the site and mouse over "Wikimapia" in the upper right corner and click on "Add new place". Then you can draw, resize and place a rectangle and add a title and notes. Tres cool. I've linked to my town, and as you can see I've put quite a few locations down for Shalimar and Ft. Walton Beach. If you know more public attractions, go ahead and add them -- that's what wikis are all about, harnessing group knowledge.
