Looking further afield, One-Eight Basetrack has created a great looking website with Google Maps and the Simile Timeline.
One-Eight Basetrack is an experimental media project, tracking the deployment of 1/8 – 1st Battalion, Eighth Marines, throughout the duration of their deployment to southern Afghanistan.
The project is using Google Maps with the SIMILE Timeline to provide a navigation aide to the videos, photographs and posts collected by the project team on the ground.
Lufthansa: Street View Live
I was also impressed this week by Lufthansa airline's clever booking form that allows users to click on a map to input the destination of a flight.
As well as auto-filling the booking form with the selected destination a click on the map also displays a Google Maps Street View of the chosen destination. For example, if a user clicks on London a Street View of the Houses of Parliament is displayed to help entice the customer to book a trip to the UK.
