Mapize Has Become A Finalist Of Apps For Californians Contest!
Yes, our Social Map of California Colleges & Universities has been selected as one of the 7 finalist applications in the State of California's Apps for Californians competition.

And even though we were not among the top five winners, it was a great pleasure for us to receive a congratulatory message from the eServices Office of the State of California! It's also very flattering to know that each of the winners and finalists will be featured on the State of California website.

I'd also remind you that the map is absolutely generic. It took us only several hours to build it (and it could have been even easier if there was an aggregate data set available).

Please find the list of the winners and finalists here.

And, as for Mapize, we will keep on looking for interesting open data contests and initiatives to leverage public data sets to create more mashups and visualizations that could improve user access to government information and services.

Just a little reminder: At almost the same time last year our Disasters Map won an honorable mention in the Apps For America 2 contest organized by the Sunlight Foundation.
