The Pothole Twitter Map

PG Pothole

The British may have #UKSnow but the residents of Prince George, British Columbia have PG Pothole. PG Pothole works on a similar principal to the #UKSnow map but, instead of mapping Tweets about snow, it maps massages reporting potholes.

To add a pothole to this Google Map all you need to do is add the hashtag #pgpotholes to a Tweet. If the tweet is geotagged or includes an address then it will appear on the map. The result, hopefully, will be a great guide for the drivers of Prince George as to which roads to avoid when driving across town.
