Winter Olympics Torch Route

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Route

Today saw the start of the 2010 Olympic Games Torch Relay in Canada. The torch started its 45,000 km journey this morning in Victoria. It will arrive in Vancouver for the start of the Olympics on February 12th. Using this official Google Maps mash-up it is possible to find out where and when you can go to watch the torch on its route.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Organizing Committee is using the Flash Maps API to show the Olympic Torch route. It is possible to search the route by a particular day, by a province, territory or by community.

Each day of the torch's route through Canada has its own map marker. Clicking on a map marker opens an information window with links to information about each of the celebration communities.
