The next step in Mapping Mashups

This post was last updated on December 12th, 2011 at 03:17 pm

As I prepare for my session at BLC, I’m on the look out for great ways to enhance the google earth/map experience. No doubt there are already a vast number of phenomenal ways to add rich content to place, but I’m still waiting for the ability to embed video. Yes, we can link to video and have it play in a browser but somehow that leaves me a bit disappointed.

I came across this site via my del.icio.us feed thanks to Quentin.  (If you don’t already have a del.icio.us network you subscribe to, go do that now).

This is some type of  mashup that does embed youtube videos but at present, it’s not open for others to add their own content. If I knew something about API’s I may be able to take advantage myself. I does appear that the inclusion of video is not far off. Maybe it’s already there and Tim Lauer just hasn’t blogged about it yet…I doubt it.
