The web site home page is www.AncestralAtlas.com - here is what the screen looks like:
The home page says that:
"Over recent years genealogy has seen a rapid growth in the use of maps to illustrate the location of ancestors. All these applications, whether directly through the use of Google Maps or proprietary software products, provide an exciting and instructive way of showing genealogical data. However, none of these applications offer an opportunity to store, search and share family history information in a secure environment with fellow genealogists worldwide."
The things a user can do on this site include:
* Add your family history to the map at the location of the event (birth, death, marriage etc) and choose if you want the world to see the data
* All data added and visible is searchable by date, event type, name and location
* Learn about the "context" of your ancestors (maps can show homes, hospitals, churches, battlefields, places of work and so on. All of which could be a new source of data for your research)
* Cut out irrelevant data by focusing on a particular location
* Communicate with fellow researchers (perhaps looking at the same locations and the same names)
* Earn an income from the data you add to Ancestral Atlas"
