VeoGeo is a site that mixes a Google mashup, GPS, and video to present user submitted sites of interest around the world. The site is newly launched so there currently are about twenty videos that have been added to the site. The main page is a Google mashup showing the location of all submitted travel shorts. Click on a marker and the video is loaded, showing you the route that was either walked or driven. If you are zoomed in on the location (unfortunately the site doesn’t zoom in automatically) then you can see the marker move along with the route of the video. Additionally, zooming in can only be accomplished by clicking the “+” button which can be odious to zoom in from a map showing the world to the location of the video. The site is clearly still in development but it’s an interesting idea that can grow.
