2010 Winter Olympics Maps

With the Winter Olympics fast approaching I'm sure this will be the the first post of many featuring Canadian and Winter Olympics maps.

3D Olympic Venues

Google recently added 3D buildings in Google Earth for all the Winter Olympics venues. Soren of microformats.dk has produced this Google Earth browser tour of all the venues.

To view the tour just press play. This application requires that you have the Google Earth browser plug-in to view the amazing 3D buildings.

Vancouver Sun Winter Olympics Map

The Vancouver Sun has produced a Google Map 'for everything at the 2010 Winter Olympics'.

The map includes sporting venues, complete with schedules and history; government pavilions, other countries' pavilions and houses, sponsor sites and events, transportation lines, road closures, the Flag Walk, the Olympic Line and park and ride facilities.

Cycling Metro Vancouver

This cycling route finder map for Vancouver allows cyclists to search for routes that have such features as minimum elevation gains, minimum air pollution, and minimum distances.

The site has recently been updated to include Olympic venues, venue security road closures (cycling prohibited), Olympic lanes with cycling prohibited and Olympic lanes with open bike lanes.
