What do you think people in the area you live in think? Here is the interactive map you needed. You yourself can fill in a certain area and set a certain color.
Collaborative maps are in fashion. This type of proposal allows users to enter reviews or any type of solution with the aim of informing other users of the map about determining aspects in a specific area of a specific city, country or continent. They are having a great reception because we can have options for all tastes and capable of meeting all our needs. It is, therefore, a very interesting bet from the point of view of obtaining information.
Google Maps is an application that allows very few customization tools so that other users can see it. Only if, for example, a mishap has occurred on the route, it is possible to notify the other people present on the road. The presence of a mobile radar or, simply, the fact that a traffic accident has occurred at a specific point, are some of the situations that allow this type of event to be recorded. For the rest, it is not possible to introduce much more customization.
Now, what if I told you that there is a particular map that has as a key element the possibility of set reviews relative to the selected area? Would you like to know what the security level of a specific space is like? The tool already exists. It’s called Hoodmaps and yes, you can also edit the area where you live or move frequently. Here are the main features of this interactive map.
You can now edit your neighborhood with the feature that most closely resembles it
Hoodmaps is created with the aim of being able to get an idea of what the keys to each residential area are. Thanks to this curious contribution, we will be able to know how is the place we are moving through. In the same way, it can help tourists to get to know the neighborhood better, since we are dealing with information that has been published by the inhabitants of the city. It is a very interesting tool, since, in addition, specific colors can be established to show in more detail what said social space is like.
Let’s use Valencia as an example. As can be seen in the previous image, this city already has a good part of its map full of details and messages that serve to announce, according to its pointers, how is each of the zones. According to information from the Hoodmaps tool itself, we can find that the north is clearly dominated by the term ‘horchata’. There is no doubt that this is clearly true, since this area, known as L’Horta Nord, has a whole series of historic establishments related to this drink. Not to mention its fields full of tiger nuts!
If we go to the area closest to the beach, logically, we find the term ‘Tourists’ due to the large influx of foreign public in these areas. After all, in this demarcation we can find tourist attractions of great depth, such as the Port and, a little further inland, the City of Arts and Sciences. If we go to other areas present in the Valencian map, the truth is that the indicated detail is fulfilled perfectly. Known as the River, it is an area of great influx of runners.
On this interactive map we can also use colors. The code of each tonality is reflected as follows: blue for ‘suits’ (business area), green for ‘rics’ (rich), yellow for ‘hip’ (fashionable), red for ‘tourist’ (tourist ), dark blue for ‘student’ and gray for ‘normie’. In this case, I can assure you that the colors could well reflect the reality of the Valencia map. Why don’t you encourage yourself to contribute and paint a color in the area where you live and put a review?
