Canada Google Maps Mashup Roundup Part 4


(See more Google Maps mashups by country..)

Travel Alberta Google Maps - Here's a great example of a tourism maps mashup in action. The province of Alberta has integrated a Google Maps application into their fantastic visitor website (Click 'Maps' on right-hand side). The map allows you to toggle National Parks, Airports, UNESCO sites (of which there are 5) and all cities and towns in Alberta. There are links to official websites, weather and driving directions to many of the places around this beautiful Canadian province from this mashup.

Ski Alberta Live - From Travel Alberta comes this cool Ski Resort mashup for the province of Alberta. With some of the best skiing in the world on offer, use this mashup to plot locations, find websites for all resorts and get driving directions.

MapIQ: Ontario educational assessment results.. Mapped! - EQAO (Education Quality and Accountability Office) conducts province-wide assessments at the primary, junior and secondary levels in Ontario to measure student achievement against curriculum expectations. University of Waterloo student Mark Hopson has created a great Google Maps mashup to explore this data for Ontario high schools. He explains: "..Each school is associated with a coloured point, where the colour is determined by the score the school received. This leaves the user with a topological profile of Ontario in regards to how well each school performed on the EQAO tests and therefore the quality of education within that particular part of Ontario."
