Nokia's Ovi Maps: Good Things

On Friday Nokia unveiled a new feature on its online mapping portal Ovi Maps. Called “Good Things”, it allows users to share their favorite places around the world.

Good Things is made up of three key elements. The first is the ability to spot Good Things icons on the map, where you can click on each one to find out more information, add it to a route or to your favorites. There’s also a live Good Things feed which shows the latest of such POIs, as they’re added. Obviously the key part is the ability for users to add their own Good Things. This is particularly easy to do in dropping a pin at the right place and entering a few lines of text.

Later this month a new Nokia buzz campaign will kick off in London, with tower cranes playing host to giant signposts showing off the latest Good Things being added by users.
