Mapeas lets you watch news videos from around the world directly from Google Maps. Using the map you can browse and watch video news by location. So, for example, if you want to watch news videos of the Chilean miners' rescue you can just zoom into Chile on the map, where there is a large cluster of news videos of the rescue.
The videos are categorised into Business, Entertainment, General, Science and Sport. You can view all categories on the map at one time or select to only show videos from one category.
To view a news video just roll-over a map marker and click on the video thumbnail.
