City maps on world66

Another new feauture: city maps on world66. Thanks to the University of Austin, Texas we have been able to upload about two hundred copyright free city maps.

To see how it works, check out our Riga travel guide
In the left menu, just below the Latvia map showing the location of Riga, you see a small preview of the city map, click the link and you see the full scale map. Quite neat, don't you think?

If you know of any collection of copyright free city maps we can use, drop us a note and we'll include them.

The next steps will be:

- Soon we will create the possibility for visitors and members to upload city-maps themselves. We will moderate the process to make sure that they are actual city maps and to see if they are not copyrighted.

- We are working a tool to show the location of restaurants, museums, hotels etc. on the maps. Be patient, this requires quite some work, also because this is one more process we need to moderate.

Great stuff guys! This feature brings the W66 a big step closer to "classical" travel guides. Also, the addresses mean a lot more on all of the pages, compared to before!

Lovely :)
