Barack Obama Inauguration Mashups

John Musser, January 20th, 2009

obama1The historic inauguration of Barack Obama today has inspired development of a variety of inauguration-themed mashups. Here are new entries from our listings:

  • MSNBC has an interative map highlighting points of interest along today’s parade route to the White House where he will take the oath of office. Built with the Microsoft Virtual Earth API it has “layers” of overlaid data that can be toggled on and off like celebrations, inauguration related, in the news, parade route and points of interest. More at our Inauguration Map profile. [via].

  • The CNN iReports Map, also set on the parade route, allows readers to submit their own stories and reports from the event. More at our Inauguration Map profile. [via].
