All Dutch Buses on Google Maps

Recently we have seen all the buildings in the Netherlands mapped by age of construction. Now we have a live real-time map of all the buses in the Netherlands.

Ovzoeker is a Google Map that shows in real-time the position of buses belonging to a number of Dutch transit companies. The buses on the map are color-coded to indicate which transit company they belong to. If you click on any one of the thousands of buses moving on this map you can view where it is heading and how early or late it is running.

This isn't the first time we've seen a live real-time map of a country's whole transit network. In Switzerland you can view the whole Swiss rail network operating in real-time at SBB Network. In the US you can view all of the Amtrak network on the Amtrak Track a Train map.
