The team of developers responsible for Google Earth and Maps have launched a new feature to show Embedded YouTube videos in Google Maps.
Geotagged YouTube videos have been available in Google Earth since last year – the service has now been extended to Maps.
Newspapers in the UK have been increasingly drawn to the use of interactive maps on their websites as a new way of displaying news to their users.
In particular, new service Everyblock has been charting a vast range of public information across city maps for Chicago, New York and San Francisco.
The Google Maps developers have pointed out examples of how this new function might work for business – but the application being used for news videos looks like it could be just a step away.
