Geocoding can give anybody the power to create their own maps of locations they encounter on a daily basis. It can help organize different groups and locations that are visited often. This is a great tool to create a visually appealing and organized map. If this program can be integrated with your gps device, it would make it easier to find a location with a click of one button.

Considering how easy this is to use, I think that many are scared away from making their own maps since it sounds harder than it really is. This brings mapping power to the people.
