BBC launches interactive Beijing Olympics map

As promised by Claire Stocks, the BBC’s interactive editor of Olympic Sports, in her interview with Journalism.co.uk, the BBC has developed an interactive map of Beijing as part of its Olympics coverage.

Blog posts to BBC Sport’s Olympics blog and updates by BBC Sport journalists in China to microblogging service Twitter will also be plotted on the map.

The map allows users to search for sporting venues and provides info about these sites. It also features local landmarks.
