We should offer a feature to create, or integrate travel maps (somewhat like TripAdvisor). It will surely allow us to gain more insight into the destinations fellow members have traveled, and can help along with.

  • What do you mean by "travel map"? I don't think we should do route-planning but I do think an illustrative map in the side panel with a marker for every place mentioned in the question, answers, and comments would be super smooth. It could also be leveraged into a different use on our profile page I suppose. – hippietrail Jul 3 '11 at 9:24

I think there are many sites with such feature already. Our point is a Q&A site, not the Plan-A-Trip site. If user wants to point out some travel plan, he can share the URL to the google maps or something.

Also Plan-A-Trip question are very uncertain, users provides many options, and this is not how I think this site should work.

What may be interesting would be a "world heat map" indicating for what country/region of the world a given user is active on the forum.

ie. a user who is only active for questions related to Croatia would have all the countries greyed out except Croatia coming up in red.
