Art in Scotland on Google Maps

GRID provides a concise Google Maps based guide to Glasgow and Edinburgh's rich cultural landscape.

The Glasgow Art Map and the Edinburgh Art Map both contain updated listings of art events in each city. Upcoming art events are displayed in the sidebar of each map and the locations of the events are displayed on the map. The sidebar contains dates and a brief description of each event and the map information window provides a link to the event or venue's website.

If you select an event from the map sidebar, as you would expect, the map scrolls to the relevant location and opens an information window. What I really like on this map is that it also works the other way around. If you select a venue on the map the sidebar scrolls to display the upcoming events at that venue.
