Map McIntosh is an interactive, personalized map that anyone can use to add points on with comments, pictures, whatever you want. Think Wikipedia with a map function. The map is based on Google's map functions, so we're not putting out there anything that Google hasn't already posted online about the town. You have control of the content you add.
What the heck can this be used for? Proud of a structure in the historic district? Then why not add those historic register points to the map, drop in a picture and a couple of lines about the history of the place that no one in town realizes?

I'm Cher From McIntosh, FL I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida working on a master's degree in Mass Communication. While I was finishing my undergrad degree in journalism last year, I reported on McIntosh, Fla. for an in-depth reporting class. I figured that the reporting and the public record files should go somewhere people can access them. Reporters don't report to keep the information they find to themselves. Some of that reporting is included here in a forum that allows response.
