How can MapMuse help me find places to live, work, learn, and play?
MapMuse was born out of a desire to find better ways to search for places of interest than existing text-based or map searches. We wanted a map search without the usual limitations; one that could display thousands of places from multiple categories simultaneously.
For example, with MapMuse you could easily create a map showing ski resorts that also shows the closest hotels in your price range. Or you could map of all the golf courses in your state, and then search for those with the highest rating.
We allow our visitors to view hundreds of places of interest on a single map without any geographic limits. This powerful feature creates a way to begin a search for places at a high level (e.g. statewide or nationwide), view clusters of places of interests, and narrow the search by zooming on a area of interest.
MapMuse aims to become a geographic directory connecting websites with their locations in the real world. Any place of interest can be added to MapMuse free of charge, and every point on our maps corresponds to a real place.
How can we be sure our information is the best? MapMuse researches and organizes the places in each brand or interest category, and though we allow visitors to the site to add or edit information for any place, our staff reviews every change before it is posted to the site. Our goal is to eliminate the 'junk' results common to many internet searches, where third parties trying to sell you something pollute the search results.
MapMuse is adding new interests and brands every week based on visitors' suggestions and other criteria. In the coming months we will be adding hundreds of categories so please check back often!
Can I suggest a brand or interest to add to your map?
New brands and interests are added to MapMuse every week, and we now have over 1,250 different topics for you to peruse! Still, we have a long way to go...the priority for adding new brands and interests is determined by suggestions from our visitors.

I noticed that the location of a place is incorrect. Can this be corrected?
Because of the vagaries and incompleteness of postal addresses, some places may be located only approximately. If you can improve upon the location of one of the places on our map, we'd appreciate it! To do so, click on that place's icon on the map and click on the 'Click to edit or correct this place's info' link on the resulting details page. Then provide one of the following:
- Latitude and longitude (can be obtained from the map, it is displayed below the map)
- Complete address (if ours is incomplete)
- Nearest street intersection (if we have address but couldn't locate the place)
