Dynamic infographics in Google maps
  [vote for,

Where is that white Bronco going? Where did that landslide go?

Dynamic infographics in Google maps with mobile realtime hotspots that you can latch your view on to, somewhat like "track orbit" in Celestia.

Follow progress live on formula one races, horse races even, sailing events.

Or maybe historical recreations like Maghellans voyage, the voyage of the Beagle, Napoleons journey over the Alps, the Adenne offensive, Waterloo, D-Day?

Nearly redundant with this idea [hippo, Mar 10 2006]


       Would it have a little diagram of a 1930's seaplane arcing its way across the ocean, whenever someone is making a journey to another continent?   

       In fact, it could have several 'stylesheets' applied, if it were done in SVG. One stylesheet could be the above 'Indiana Jones' esque, style. Another could be a '"Dad's Army" opening titles' style of progress.

       It could follow you around over a period of time and show a dynamic infographic representation of the day before you came. If you wanted members of your family to know where you are, it could display labels, such as "Mum, I'm here".

       Just figure out how to build fly-throughs in Google Earth, then save and share them.
