Foursquare location on Google map with Peek Maps widget

February 6th, 2010

Peek Maps is a location based mapping mashup that was originally created for use with the Peek mobile email device.

Foursquare “Check Ins” are now being mapped as well.

I admit it – I am a huge geolocation geek and I’m a big fan of the Peek.

So, when Peek and Xtify teamed up to provide a means to pull my own Peek’s location out of the ether, and to boot, they were hosting a programming competition, I knew I had to throw my hat into the ring. Thus, Peek Maps was born.

I really have enjoyed working on Peek Maps and the challenges it has brought. Many thanks to all at Peek, Xtify, and Foursquare for helping me in getting the project completed!
–Mark Bowytz

Once you create an account with Peek Maps, you can then grab the code and embed it into your website and instantly show off all the cool places you “Check In” with Foursquare.

Foursquare is an app for the iPhone that allows you to explore your city in a social way. Sharing your location, earning points and status, sharing tips. The exploding popularity of Foursquare is quite exciting.
TechCrunch reports: Foursquare Passes 1 Million Check-Ins A Week. Rate Doubled In The Past Month.
