The Born Cages Festival Tracking Map
American alternative rock band Born Cages are tracking their summer festivals tour on Google Maps. The map plots the Google location history data from a mobile phone and is updated daily as the band travels around the United States.
The Born Cages: Festival Trail animates the band's progress from the beginning of the tour up until the current date. As the animated track is drawn on the map the dashboard updates to show the heading, altitude and miles traveled.
Once the track has been added to the map Instagram pictures from the band's Instagram account are added to the map, at the locations where they were taken. You can also listen to Born Cages while browsing the map by pressing play on the Soundcloud embedded player.
