Personalized Mapping with Platial: Useful Tool!

Inman posted this interview on August 22.  The Platial site allows us to add layers of content to maps, and to easily export to our own venues.  I think this will be huge for me.  Take a listen, and please comment with your idea on HOW we can use this in our businesses.

Let's start a list of ways we can use this tool to add value to listings, presentations, etc.  I also think it could be a useful tool for our Localism posts.
