I've been working on the Map feature of the new site on and off. I noticed that the current map tools in this site are really hard to use. I invented this site and even I had difficulty figuring out how to do the stuff I knew it could do!
The new site will be more straightforward. You click on the Maps tab and you'll it right away. But my question is what is the most useful tool here? By default, I will probably have it show all the places that are within a certain radius of a given point.
Other tools I could add are maps that show your own progress. As an example, I think it would be neat to show a pin on every brewery with a beer you've reviewed. Another map would show only the places you have reviewed (meaning you were actually there, which isn't necessarily the case for reviewing a beer).
