Where Is Noe Valley *Really*?

With all the geeks/programmers/engineers/coders in San Francisco you'd think someone would have come up with a better map of San Francisco neighborhoods than realtors provide. Enter the The Neighborhood Project --they cull data from Craigslist housing posts and input on their own site to map out how people identify where they live. Call it democracy in mapping.

Check it out. If enough people help populate the map we may have to change the borders we use to cover Noe Valley.
