Tracking PlanetSolar with Google Maps
PlanetSolar is a catamaran that runs solely on the power of the sun. In fact it is the biggest solar run ship in the world.
Currently the PlanetSolar is on the DeepWater expedition, working with researchers from the University of Geneva, to take physical and biological measurements along the Gulf Stream. You can follow along with the expediation on the PlanetSolar website, where you can view a live dashboard, showing the PlanetSolar's current speed and the total distance completed so far.
A Google Map also shows the live real-time position of the PlanetSolar. Alongside the live dashboard and map you can keep up-to-date with the latest developments on the exhibition by reading the regularly updated log posts.
