    Thanks for noticing Jumpclaimer.com. However, just for the record, this isn’t anything to do with Google. Sort of. They do provide the excellent API to incorporate their maps into your website, but I can assure you this SMS mapping has no origin at Google 🙂

    We are just working out the best way to register users, but we are sure we should have it up and running before Christmas. At the moment you can send a ‘test’ text message which will give you a quick example of what it does.

    Once registered of course, you have access to edit and move points.
