If anybody isn't on the map, or in the wrong location, let me know (PM) and I'll make adjustments.

While I agree that the mapping quality still leaves something to be desired, the API is very cool :D

This will let you add your own comments to a database. The comments are tied to a location.

Thanks. I could add some functionality, but even in its current state, this has some potential.

Martin,

Yes, URL's will work if you do them in proper HTML, like:
<a href="http://www.whatever.com" target="_blank">this</a>

In fact, the comment will take about any HTML tag... It's being rendered as HTML anyway.
