Canadian Tourism Mapplets

Vancouver - the 2010 Winter Games

The city of Vancouver has created this really nice Google Maps mapplet to show the venues of the upcoming Winter Olympic games and to highlight some of the other great locations the city has to offer. The mapplet makes use of the new Canadian Street View imagery to let you view the locations with Google's panoramic images.

The locations can be selected from a drop down menu in the map sidebar. When you make a selection the map zooms to that location and opens Street View. Information about the location is also loaded into the map sidebar.

Similar mapplets, with Street View highlights, have also been created for:
