QR map

QR codes let you encode some useful data with 2D barcodes. Here is an idea: let us encode the map. So the published QR code could be scanned by the mobile phone and lead to the nearby area map. The next step is obvious - Google Map + Google Chart + Google static map + Tiny URL lead to the new mashup: QR map
You can choose the location (center the map), set the scale and get a Tiny URL for the QR code encodes the map (240 x 320 size – right for the mobile phones). For getting the QR code (image url) just hit a mail icon on the map

P.S. the pure (not QR code) map for the mobile users is still available via Mobile map mashup.
