Online Mapping, Social Mapping and the Like

There is a plethora of online mapping tools out there on the Web.  Let's talk about their utility, functionality, integration into the workplace or academic curricula, and our general thoughts about them.

This is a great tool that offers online mapping, with different levels of functionality for free or for a subscription.  I find it's one of the few tools that is truly simple to use, and a student or colleague can make a very quick map, or series of maps, and then publish them as a video or a PowerPoint in less than 5 minutes.  Not many tools that can do that!

I first learned about this tool at the University of Virgina Scholar's Lab Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship. 

It's now been official released as a beta product for public use, and is worth checking out to see if online georeferencing can be done for any of your collections.
