+===================================

+Front-end

+Slippy Map
+    PolyMaps (but would probably use Leaflet or GMaps in the future)
+
+What makes a good map
+
+* Attractive
+    * Use a different base layer
+    * cloudlayer.com
+    * GMaps styled map wizard
+* Readable
+* Interactive
+* Fast
+    * Use a CDN
+    * Don't pass through too much data
+    * Don't use too many polygons (draw shapes on the server and send flat images to the map, if possible)
