Fans of the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite might be interested in seeing this new Google Maps "Movie Map" for the film called.. DynamiteMap. Google Maps has been used to plot the places from the real life town of Preston, Idaho which is depicted in the movie. Locations like the Bowling Alley, Grocery Store and High School are all there, along with events like Kip and LaFawnduh's Wedding. Each location is browseable by scene screen capture or text list. Google Maps compliments this movie fan page which also includes a video clip of David Letterman's Top 10 list and mp3 sound bites from the movie.
Even if you haven't seen this movie, I've put together a section here on Google Maps Mania where I'm tracking other known Movie Maps that have used the Maps API to plot locations or give movie goers the chance to further interact with the film and real life locations where scenes from the movie take place. In some cases these are actually integrations into the film's official website. Here is a list:
- Miami Vice Movie Mashup
- X-Men 3 Movie Map
- Oscars Mashup
- Ghostbusters Filming Locations
- 16 Blocks Movie - My 16 Blocks
- Brighton UK Filming Locations
- Academy Award winners on Google Maps
Do you know of a Google Maps Movie Map that isn't mentioned here? If so, please post a comment! If you have an idea for a Movie Map get one created (Try: Community Walk or the API) and drop me a line once completed so I can include it in the list!
