Mare on Google Maps

Mare Online

German magazine Mare has produced a Google Map that provides access to its entire online archive, including articles, audio and video contributions. The site has also added, where relevant, small Google Maps to its archive of articles, to give a geographical context to the content.

On the large map it is possible to search by subject matter or by each issue of the magazine. Screenshots of the front covers of the magazine are displayed at the top of the map. Clicking on any of the screenshots will load map markers for the geo-tagged content from that issue of the magazine.

The job of mapping Mare's huge archive of articles was given to Ubilabs, whose live tracking maps of the Tour de France are always hugely popular. Hopefully they will be producing another Tour de France mashup this year.
