Making Maps More with ThingLink

I’m lost without maps because my mind is swirling in music.  When I started working and driving in San Francisco, using my car GPS to get from one place to another made learning a new city easier. My GPS chirped directions and I followed.

With ThingLink, maps can also speak. They can be sound and video players. You can tell a story inside and share the culture of a country. Now, touching maps delivers so much more.

Take a look at ways you can enhance maps with ThingLink. Props to Paddy McCabe, Indie Ambassador, Ottawa Star, Soundway Records, Washington Post, Mashable, and Multimediael Universal.
