Mapping the Winter Olympics

I’m not the most consistent of bloggers even at the best of times, but, depending on how things go, over the next two weeks posts to The Map Room might be a bit sporadic due to the demands of one of my other projects: DFL, the blog that celebrates last-place finishes at the Olympics.

On that note, though, there have been a few links relating to maps of the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy.

The Google Blog reports that the Torino area has been updated with high-resolution imagery for Google Local (i.e., Maps) and Google Earth, and there’s also a KMZ file with the Olympic venues.

Google Maps Mania links to a number of Olympics-related mashups.

And Cartography takes a look at the official maps available at the Torino 2006 web site.
