eBay has just launched a small test – the eBay Map It Prototype. This expands their search – when you use MapIt to search for listings within a specific radius, you’ll see a map indicating exactly where these items are located, and can drill down to get the items closest to you. They get the maps and geographical data from MapQuest. This is also in direct competition with existing services like AuctionMapper, and seems more user-friendly at first glance.
