BBC Sport + Google Maps = Sport Map

+ = Sport Map!

Here is a very impressive and functional UK Google Maps mashup which takes BBC Sport RSS feeds and mashes it up onto a Google Map. The map interface that is employed in this mashup is a clever way to find regional information on a Google Map interface.

Start by centering the map in a location within England (perhaps London). When you are zoomed into an area that you are interested in, click your middle mouse button (if you have one) or the F2 key. In the left pane the nearest football club is displayed, along with all the latest BBC Sport news headlines and stories for that region. Give it a go!
