The complexity and range of the project depends entirely on you. You may submit a project that you build all by yourself. However, It is recommended that you form a team of at least 2 people to submit a solution.
The application or tool you build should have these features plus other features limited only by your imagination. Additional features make you a preferred candidate for winning.
Your application should support multiple user access and encourage community participation. In other words, your application should be Web 2.0
Your application should have a simple user interface and be easy to interact with.
You will need to add at least one geolocation feature in your application. Your use of the Google Maps APIs will give you an added advantage.
