Talk to the Mayor with Google Maps
KQED News have created a 2011 San Francisco Mayor's Race Google Map.
KQED sent a team of reporters to five districts in San Francisco and asked voters what they want the next mayor to fix in their neighborhoods. They then mapped the results. KQED say the map provides a way "to compare communities and get a pretty good idea of some key issues the next mayor will have to tackle".
The map itself includes a pretty cool comment and scrolling feature. If you mouse-over the respondent's comments at the bottom of the page then the map will scroll to the correct location and show a preview picture of the interviewee. Even as you scroll down the page, to read the lower comments, the map remains in the same position.
