If by map you meant real world maps, this task becomes pretty much 
trivial. It is fairly easy to embed Google Map in your own web app, and 
their API provides a lot for almost anything you would need to do.

Although Google Maps are often used for boring everyday tasks like 
ordering taxi, reporting potholes, finding public toilets, etc, etc 

These are also some examples of the quirkiest things you could do with 
Google Maps:
