The Murals of Winnipeg is a self-proclaimed hobby and labour of love of three individuals. It maps the locations of 522 murals in the city of Winnipeg, using open-source software, including PHP, MySQL, MapServer and fGIS - unusual for such an endeavour in the age of Google Maps mashups. Each mural location is symbolized on the zoomable, pannable street map of Winnipeg and is hotlinked to a larger image and description of the mural.

Bob Bruce talks a bit about the technical challenges in putting the mapping interface together - which were substantial considering that the three partners and had money.

Thanks Bob.
