Now that nearly all cities have their GPS coordinates available, we should really look at showing a master map with all the cities that we have. I imagine a map with pins, and an option to click any of them and you see the name and image, just like when browsing infrastructure etc. With one option to click and see their full profile.

Done! I've integrated the map on our homepage. If people prefer another place, let me know. But it seems a suitable position. It is very nice to see a visual representation of what we have in our database. Later on, we might for instance change the marker color depending on completion level (say grey, yellow, green, something like that). We can also add some more info to the popup box. But all this is for later; for now, this will do just fine I think. Also: clear gaps on the map! Our African Cities MOOC is definitely important to try and roll out, and we should also look at big gaps in Asia!
