Amazing Race 13 in Google Maps

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
