I was rambling on the google discussion list when I found this example of how integration of online resources on a map visualization can help to solve lots of simple little problems in our daily life.
I just had a similar experience. I wanted to search for the store Meijer on Google Maps, but could not recall the correct spelling. I ended up doing a regular Google search on the wrong spelling, and wound up with a lot of pages about computer game designer Sid Meier. Then I remembered Google Sets, and entered “Wal-Mart, Target, Sam’s ?Club” as a set. It immediately brought me back a list of those and ?other major stores, including “Meijer” (correctly spelled), and, ?interestingly, both “JC Penny” and “JC Penney”. A quick trip back to Google Maps, and I found the nearest Meijer store, ?3.9 miles away from my office. Thanks, Google! — One Happy Googler
