ITN Unveils Maps Mashup

Visitors to the ITN website can now access international news via a Google Map application.

British users are presented with a UK map and a search facility where they can manually request to view articles from global locations.

Results when opened provide a picture and introduction to the geotagged story and a link to view it in full.



And Firefox users automatically receive news from their area on visiting the page as the Google Gears Geolocation API “reads” their location.

Further information on this and other mapping applications can be found on the Google Maps Mania blog.
