Platial gets even cooler with MapKit



We were positively delighted by Platial first time it came up: the idea of an atlas anybody could annotate seemed to have, pardon me, a world of possibilities. Maps of hydrogen refuelling stations, maps of vegetarian restaurants, maps of places to buy fair trade coffee – endless! Well, Platial’s latest trick is its Mapkit, which embeds the annotation capabilities right in your web site, and allows addition of sound, photos and video. Already in use at’s Vancouver site to find everything from Chinese food to nightclubs. [GT]
