The idea is make it as simple as possible for people to find nearby Easter events that pique their interest, and then show them how to get to those events.
Reston, Virginia (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
MapMuse today announced the release of its Easter Locators, a series of interactive web maps that connect people with upcoming Easter events in their neighborhood and across the country. Celebrators can now find and learn about Easter parades, Easter egg hunts and other celebrations, all on one easy-to-use website.
“The idea is make it as simple as possible for people to find nearby Easter events that pique their interest, and then show them how to get to those events,” says MapMuse owner Mike Pilon. Each event is given a profile page, which can be accessed by clicking the icon pinned to its physical location on the map. The profile page is packed with helpful data such as visiting information, contacts, photos, reviews, and web links. Once a user finds an event they’d like to attend, they can get driving directions there or call ahead for more details. “The maps will get you to the egg hunt, but the burden of finding the eggs is on you,” jokes Pilon.
In the interest of engaging the community, MapMuse encourages users to submit photos and review of the events they visit. “We’re a bit like a Yelp or a TripAdvisor, but limited to Easter,” says Pilon. Users can also suggestions to the maps if they know of an event that was left off, as well as updates to existing profiles. “We spend a ton of time culling good data,” says Pilon, “But it can’t hurt to crowdsource a bit.” All suggestions are vetted by MapMuse for accuracy before going live on the maps.
