GoDaddy has introduced an interesting geo-domain locator tool, GeoMapDomain, using Bing Maps for the backend. It provides an interesting way to find whether specific towns, villages or neighborhood domains and variations are available via a mapping interface.
From the Bing Blog post:
The GeoDomainMap takes your location input and finds nearby neighborhoods. Then, it takes your keywords and appends your keywords, sans white space, and creates a domain name. It then checks the GoDaddy database of available domain names and returns those that are available.
