Norwegian Snow on Google Maps

TV 2 Nyhetene Snow Map

This Google Maps Mashup is a Norwegian version of #UKSnow. Just like #UKSnow it maps Twitter messages about snow. However, whereas Ben Marsh's map shows snow related Tweets using snow map markers, TV 2 Nyhetene are mapping photographs sent to Twitter.

To add a photograph to the map link to a photo from twitpic or yfrog, use the keyword #kulde and include your postcode in the message. Your snow picture will then be added to the map.

TV 2 Nyhetene acknowledge that their map is inspired by the #UKSnow map and also a similar photograph map created by The Guardian that showed snow photos taken in the UK.
