Alternative Festivals Map
The Guardian are becoming regular users of the Google Visualization API to create interactive rich media content for their website. Two weeks ago The Guardian used the API to create a Best Boutique Hostels Map now they have produced this Alternative Festivals Map.
The map is as an interactive guide to small UK events, up-and-coming European festivals, and readers' tips from across the world. Using the Visualization API means it is very easy to create a tabbed sidebar of the mapped data. In this map The Guardian have tabs for 'Alternative UK Festivals', 'Our Euro Picks' and 'Reader's Tips'.
