    This is definitely in the category of #coolmap - Here is a map of "famous" people from your hometown. Zoom into your city to find out who this map believes is the most famous person. In my hometown of Trenton, NJ, it say it is Dennis Rodman, ex-Chicago Bulls basketball player and friend of Kim Jung Un. 

    I think you can argue about the source of some of the data, most of which is culled from Wikipedia. For example, Jack Nicholson, the actor, is recognized as being from, Neptune City, Manasquan, and Spring Lake, all in NJ. So, perhaps there is room for improvement in this map.

    Have fun.

    That's funny & interesting. 

    I saw that the UK map of famous people is also available following the same link. You can easily switch.

    Thanks for sharing Joe!
