results, buddy list, favorite spots, etc). The site will focus on
restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and other points of interest
within Manhattan and eventually will expand to other urban areas.
The site will allow users to visualize locations and information
about these locations and to see the specific location choices,
recommendations, and movements of other users. MapFlex allows
users’ movements and preferences within Manhattan to be tracked and
shared with others.
