Google Maps API + GnomeWorldWide?
I was looking at the Google Maps API documentation, and had an idea: combine it with the data from GnomeWorldWide, and you could have a nice zoomable map, and provide extra info when clicking on the marker (name, location, hackergotchi, etc).
I might take a look at this when I get some time (probably after getting back from Brazil).
We've done something similar at Ubuntu-fr.org but we update the xml file by hand thaks to the wiki

Let me know if you want some help with this. I think it would be super-cool. I've played with the Google Maps API, but I want to do something a little more complex.

I've done a usermap for ubuntuusers. [http://www.ubuntu-de.org/map.php] :-)

You mean something like Ross Burton did:
Alan Pater -
Great movie, Brazil. Have you read the book it's based on?
James Henstridge -
Dennis: yeah. Ross did that after we talked about it on IRC. There is a lot more that could be done though, such as popping up some user info when clicking on the markers.
