Google Maps Mashup - Colgate University = Yearbook 2.0

"The senior yearbook is a time-honored tradition at many colleges and universities, but given the general decline of print it’s about time school yearbooks were given a dose of digital therapy. Colgate University did just that with its Class of 2010 interactive Google Map.

The map mashup is pinned with each graduating senior’s new location as she or he heads off to pursue post-collegiate plans and opportunities. Clicking on either a name or a pin pulls up information about that student’s post-graduation plans, making it easy to track at a glance the locations of one’s fellow students after leaving the Colgate fold."
