MapShares

FAQ

Where does this idea come from?

You may have heard about all these sites selling "pixels" for advertisement? All these sites are clones of The Million Dollar Homepage, the original site created by Alex Tew. His site is really successful.
The idea with MapShares is to come up with something more innovative. Instead of "pixels", MapShares lets you acquire no less than... a piece of Earth!
We have been playing with Google Maps for a while, and we thought it would be cool to transpose the "million dollar" idea to a map. Now, let us know what you think about this idea... Isn't it great?
