A Spain Google Maps Mashup Roundup (May/08)

Spain continues to be a source for great Google Maps mashups! It has produced some of the greats of the Google Maps mashup world: Panoramio, Tagzania and Wikiloc (to name just a few). The great mashups continue with more from great Spanish geo developers.. Keep it up Spain! :)

Live Spain Traffic Mashup:

David Fernandez has created a real-time mashup that monitors all traffic incidents across Spain. It even mashes up photos from Spain's own Panoramio! (Languages: Espanol, Valencia, Catala, English)

Anunciatupiso: Spain Housing Mashup - Anunciatupiso is a housing mashup that will let you search many Spanish web housing sources for pretty much any type of housing. This includes all types of residential and commercial housing). Search results are mapped or you can start out by exploring listings on the map instead. (Language: Espanol)

Balearic Islands Mashup: Ibiza - Mallorca - Menorca - Formentera

The Balearic Islands, between Spain and the North Africa coast are a travel mecca. Elena Vera has created a series of mashups for the 4 islands that make up the archipelago. The maps include an overlay of the municipal boundaries and placemarks for points of interest around the island. These points of interest include details of where towns and beaches are located along with lighthouses and ports, natural areas, places of cultural interest and events. All of this information is also available in KML format for a deeper dive using Google Earth. (Languages: English, Espanol, German)

Mallorca Island: Santa Ponsa Map - Here is another Google Maps mashup that will help you locate bars, restaurants, hotels etc.. for Santa Ponsa on the island of Mallorca. (Language: English)

Updates to Wikiloc - Jordi Ramot from Spain dropped me a line to let me know that Wikiloc now has over 10,000 GPS trails from across Spain and Europe. A revamped KML feed also makes it easy to discover tracks using Google Earth! I encourage people from all over the world to populate this fantastic service and share your trails! :) (Languages: English, Espanol, Catala, Galego, Euskaraz, Francais, Italiano, Svenska, Dutch )
