Real-Time Cigar Smoke on Google Maps

Carillo Twitter Map

E.P. Carrillo is a soon to launch cigar manufacturer. As a placeholder for the company website E.P.Carillo have created a Twitter & Google Maps mashup, to show Tweets in real-time that mention the word "cigar" anywhere in the world.

The main website will launch in October and will also use a Google Maps interface. The new site will feature a Google Map which will feature a "Places To Smoke" layer to allow cigar fans to upload their favourite spots for enjoying cigars.

The new site will also feature a geographic journey showing the process of a cigar's manufacture, from the tobacco farms in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and Ecuador to the E.P. Carrillo factory in the Dominican Republic where the cigars are rolled.
