Currate - Currency Conversion on a Map

Currate offers an interesting way to compare the value of currencies around the world. Currate uses a Google Map to allow you to quickly compare the value of two country's currencies. To compare currencies simply move the two placemarks provided by Currate onto the country's whose currencies you wish to compare. Click the placemarks and the currency comparisons will appear in a text box.

Applications for Education
Currate could be a useful little tool for teachers of global economics. It could also be useful for anyone that is planning to take students on a trip outside of their country.
