WebORB Map Chat is an online message/chat application that automatically displays the location of each person chatting on a map of the world in real-time. The ‘google maps ajax chat’ is a neat example of Web 2.0 technologies.
Here’s the webpage introduction:
"This example demonstrates bi-directional messaging between heterogeneous (Flash and AJAX) clients and WebORB Message Server. The server performs additional processing to geolocate chat users, injects necessary information in messages so users can be plotted on the map.Type your message in the text field below and press Enter or click Send to broadcast the message to the channel. To share your map with a user, select the user in the list and click the ‘Share Map’ button. The user has to accept map sharing and you will be notified when it happens. Once the map is shared, you pan, zoom and switch map types. All of these actions are immediately replicated with the other user."
