MAPMUSE WEB SITE MAPS COIN SHOP LOCATIONS

Cindy Jett of Mapmuse.com writes: "I am writing to let coin
enthusiasts know about a website that has interactive mapping
of over 1700 coin shops across the US.  In order to view the
Coin Dealers map, go to Mapmuse.com, select "View All Interests",
and select "Coin Dealers" from the list of interests.

The idea is for coin enthusiasts to build upon what we have started
by adding dealers we have missed, and editing and enhancing information
that is already there themselves.  Through this kind of community
effort, we hope to have the most comprehensive, descriptive, and up
to date maps to help coin enthusiasts locate coin dealers at home
and on their travels.

We would appreciate if you would participate in the process, by
checking if your favorite coin shops are mapped, enhancing information
as you see fit, and adding shops that we missed. This is simple to do.
To add a coin shops, go to the Coin Dealers map, click on "Know any
coin dealers we are missing?", fill out the form, click submit, and
your information will be posted within a few hours.  To edit information
 about a shop that is already mapped, click on the icon associated
with the shop. An information box will pop up, click the edit link,
fill out the form, click submit and the changes will appear within a
few hours."

[The company is attempting to target niche markets in areas such as
coin, stamp and antique collecting, Civil War, knitting, scrapbooking
and model trains.  This would be a useful tool for travelers who want
to make a quick sidetrip to indulge their hobbies. Of interest to
bibliophiles are the maps of new and used book dealers.  Ultimately,
the major Internet portals such as Yahoo and Google will probably take
over this market completely, but there may always be room for scrappy
niche competitors if they work hard to ensure the completeness and
integrity of their data.  -Editor]
