The Manchester Evening News has augmented its first use of interactive Google Maps with a new addition detailing traffic congestion and roadworks across the city.
The newspaper is using information on bottlenecks and traffic build-ups sourced from the readership to construct maps of problem areas.
The traffic map follows the addition of the Manchester Evening News Murder Map, an interactive feature detailing all the killings across the city since 1999.
The murder map was seemingly inspired by the groundbreaking crime maps used by newspaper in the US. ChicagoCrime.org and LA Times.com homicide map were amongst the first to take advantage of easily accessible public information on crime in the US.
