Zeev's map of Paris

Paris lovers should take a look at the amazing map of Paris that Zeev Ben-Nahum has created after realizing that information about great spots in Paris aren't always very accessible.

The map is a mashup of of a Google Map and a fairly large set of restaurants, museums, shopping centers, and so on. Zeev has only included those places that are of interest, rather than every restaurant, cinema, or park in the entirey city.

Looking at the map, it can be a bit overwhelming, so Zeev included a number of filters and types of markers, so that you can search for just what you want. There are filters for the days of the week, music venues, kid friendly, shopping, kosher restaurants, hotels, and so on.

This is probably the best travel application I've seen so far for Google Maps.

Zeev's mashup seems to be both well thought out and user friendly. Customization options to filter by parameters and color code accordingly make for ease of use. However, Zeev should consider smaller markers or ones with a hint of translucence, so as not to cover street names, landmark names, etc. Zooming in/out may or may not solve this problem.

Zeev's map of Paris is a great application. When I first went to Paris, I had a hard time deciding where to eat and visit, because of all of the many restaurants, theaters, museums, etc. Had I stayed in Paris for a year, as opposed to a week, then maybe I would have been able to experience everything. However, now thanks to the Zeev app., the next time I visit this great city, I will have an easier time deciding where to go, and what to do.
