Motorbikes, GPS, YouTube & Google Maps

Atlas Rider

Atlas Rider is a blog about one motorbike enthusiast's biking adventures. The blog features Google Maps showing Atlas Rider's touring log and destination log. More excitingly though the blog also contains a number of video and Google Maps mashups.

The maps show videos of some of Atlas Rider's bike runs synchronised with Google Maps. As you watch the video the location in the map is automatically updated.

Atlas Rider was recently interviewed by Hak5. In the video below Atlas Rider talks to Hak5 about how he shoots the video, how he grabs the GPS of his ride and how he synchronises the video with Google Maps (Atlas Rider starts at 2 mins 44 secs),
