The rapid growth of web services these days' only shows that a number of people nowadays, look up to the internet as their primary source of information. Moreover, through the internet which provides low cost and nearly instantaneous sharing of ideas, knowledge and skills, collaborative work was made dramatically easier. Accordingly, several web services offer this kind of working environment to internet users who are engaged with online projects such as collaborative mapping. However, most of these services do not offer desirable searching mechanism.
This study discusses a scheme on how to bring together a collaborative mapping service and a more efficient searching mechanism based on user-preference that would cater to the need of the users in a social networking web application.
