This is interesting as it looks to be a significant advance over the core Google Maps map creation facility which allows the addition of points-of-interest and the saving of localities found in a Google Map search to personal maps. I am using the basic Google Map functionality in support of some job-search support for professional colleagues and the Build-a-Map solution looks like it might have sufficient functionality to satisfy some early feedback on desired features.

The Points-of-Interest example provided on the Build-A-Map website ... I would suggest that the OpenStreetBrowser (www.openstreetbrowser.org) would be a highly competitive crowdsourced alternative to building your own PoI maps. By contributing to OpenStreetBrowser via OpenStreetMap, you enrich the end product not just for yourself but for all users.
