Here's another ultra-cool tool that just went live.  It lets you tag areas of the map.  Anyone can tag a location without registering or logging in.  

I took the liberty of spending way too much time tagging up BBNP.  There's more to be tagged if anyone wants to take a stab at it.  Here is the map zoomed in on BBNP:

I should mention that you can mouse over the little boxes on the map to see what it is.

And if you click on a box, it'll let you zoom in.  Click again after zooming in and it'll let you click "show info" which brings up dialog box with editable info.  I just added the Chisos Mountain Lodge website to the lodge's box.

Hmmm, I better abort this site pronto or I won't get any work done today...

Very cool!!!  I could actually see the Rice cemetery and the weather station on the ridge near Chilicoatal Mountain.  Much easier to navigate than plain Google Earth.

Pretty neat. I added some information on Glenn Spring.
