Amazing Race 13 in Google Maps

Filed under: Software Updates — by at 9:03 pm on Sunday, September 28, 2008

My wife and I have been big fans of The Amazing Race for a few years now, so I thought it’d be fun to track their route throughout the season.  Below is their map after the first leg, from Los Angeles, CA to Salvador, Brazil.  I’ll be updating the map each week with more information, photos, etc, so check back each week to see the latest updates.

The red lines/icons are areas that have already been completed (as shown on TV), the green pushpin is their current location, and the yellow lines are the future destinations for the contestants.

Be sure to zoom in on each area of the map for more details and information.

My wife and I really liked the Amazing Race 13 datafile — I had started to build my own file when I found this one — but have I missed something? I’ve been looking for the later race legs here but I haven’t found them. Have you dropped the project? TIA.

Just wondering how you created the connecting lines to track a route. I am trying to design a route for a travel blog, with comments at each marker. I have spent all day reading and still have no idea how to do this. Referring advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
from now on every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails
with the exact same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that
service? Thanks!

Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as
much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, but I truly thought you
would probably have something helpful to say.

All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could possibly fix if you were not
too busy looking for attention.
