I am a traveler, an expat, and a fan of the OpenStreetMap project. Because of this, despite the huge number of sites with maps on them, I usually find them lacking in some important options and I don’t like their design. Since I myself am a programmer, I didn’t start writing huge, verbose, critical articles but simply went and created something I like. Moreover, I had always wanted to create a service which allows talented people to earn good money. I met many such people in Thailand: programmers, bloggers, SEO specialists, creators of their own Internet projects. I wanted to create something so they could continue to live in a tropical paradise and do whatever they are interested in, and so that other talented people would be able to create a business, toss out their routine, move to live by the ocean, and join the community. So, meet maps with poker and flight attendants – 3maps iLoveVitaly prOject.
3maps iLoveVitaly prOject is a maps for travellers, bloggers, dreamers and everybody, who use maps and address search, with a wide choice of services which reduce costs, dramatically improve the quality of your travel and allow everybody to earn good money online to live permanently on the tropical island and become happy!
The main feature of the service – search and display of an address is performed simultaneously on the 3 leading maps: Osm, Google and Bing. I like the rendering and the detailed maps of Osm, but its address search isn’t particularly good. Google and Bing, too, can be wrong if you’re far from a big city or in an exotic country, and any error in this situation can be costly. That’s why here we have 3 maps simultaneously.
Furthermore, the image of a given area is different on different maps, and you can’t know in advance which map has better and more relevant information. Therefore, previously, you had to open and search on several maps separately; now:
• with one click, you instantly search on 3 maps simultaneously, and you can immediately see which map has pinpointed the place correctly;
• with one click on the desired map, you shift all three maps to the pinpointed location, and you can choose which map has the best rendering of the area.
Furthermore, you can easily open the map you need in full-screen mode and work only with it from then on, with the option to switch instantly to other maps if necessary.
A nice bonus to this structure is the ability to simultaneously work with up to three synchronized maps, for example, you look at the map of on area on Osm, and you open satellite images of it on Google and Bing.
