Olympics Videos on Google Maps - Updated

Winter Olympics Video Map

Mibazaar has put together this Google Maps mashup showing geo-tagged YouTube videos of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The videos are embedded directly within the information windows on the map. Each information window also includes forward and back buttons so that you can navigate to the other videos on the map.


JotPix is a YouTube and photographs Google Maps mashup. The application allows people to embed location specific photos and videos on a Google map.

JotPix usually concentrates on travel video but has produced a special Vancouver Google Map featuring 2010 Winter Olympics videos. The videos currently include coverage of the Olympic Torch relay and some early action from the games themselves.

If you aren't that interested in the Olympics you can search JotPix for travel videos from around the world. It is possible to search for videos by location directly from a Google Map or use the site's search box.
