The Beatles on a multi-media map! Check out this cool new service that tells a story on a map. Try it out for yourselves. “And when at last I find you, your song will fill the air…” (for Beatles blogs and forums) http://heganoo.com/node/2533

I'd say it's spam, but I went on and it seems legit. Only thing I'd say is that it should probably be moved to Pimp Your Stuff.

It's pretty cool, good job. Though it doesn't have many locations, it'd be cool if it had a balloon for every tour stop.

Interesting idea. Shouldn't really be in "The Songs" though.

It's a good beginning, but just that... What you need to do is, when you go to Liverpool on tab 1 for example, have the important locations marked - childhood homes, their schools, where John and Paul met, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, the Cavern, other places they played, etc. A good beginning though.

I have moved this to the Pimp Your Stuff category. We do have a Map section on this site already.

If anyone wishes to supplement this with the site provided by Henry, it is your choice.

I was disappointed in the map. I thought there might be markers for all the places mentioned in Beatles' songs, like Tuscon, Arizona. (That's where JoJo left his home.) Or, the Black Mountain Hills of Dakota, where Mister Raccoon lived… somewhere. Maybe the map is a work-in-progress.

Looks to me to be a work in progress, of which as it gets filled in should be a really usefully site. Tons of potential.
