JungleThingy is a mashup of Amazon web services, Google maps API and the power of javascript. Basically it’s a straight forward interface where you can see the Google map on the left side of the screen. You can click on the map to get a list of the possible locations at the middle box, these locations are being pulled according to the location you’ve clicked and once you’ve selected a location from the list, you will be able to see the books related with that specific geological location. These listing of books actually comes from the Amazon web services.
