Google Maps on the BBC World Service

Digital Planet

This week's edition of the BBC World Service's Digital Planet is all about the Geographic web. The programme includes an interview with Marcello Quintella, a geo project manager at Google’s Brazilian Headquarters. In the programme Gareth talks about some of the latest geographical features available on your mobile phone, including Google Maps and Street View.

Also on the programme is a section on geocaching (GPS treasure hunts),

You can listen to the podcast of the programme here.

Because this is a special all about the geographic web there is also a Google Map of listeners. Digital Planet wants to know where their listeners are, so they have created this Google Map, to which you can add your location.
