A Pirate map that’s not on parchment.

Not exactly what Robert Louis Stevenson had in mind when he wrote treasure island, but if the cabin boy had had an iPhone it could have been a different story.

This superb Bing map shows instances of Piracy on the high seas and users can click on the pushpin for more information. You can also sort a list on the left hand side by date, victim and aggressor.

The developer offers a premium version of the software that includes a heat map and interactive timeline. If you’re planning to take your dinghy out this weekend it could be just the tool you need.

For more information and to see a full review of the map see Chris Pendleton’s blog here.

Maps.com’s Custom Mapping solutions team can produce a variety of Mashups with Google and Bing Maps, as well as entirely original and bespoke printed and interactive maps.
