Real Time Mapping with Google maps

This is one of the cooler uses of Google Maps. The DARTmaps Project shows the real time movement of trains on train tracks in Dublin. While you can watch the trains move around in the default view, for more dramatic effect, click on one of the trains to zoom in. It’s a pretty interesting use of AJAX and utilization of real time data. Hopefully it’ll inspire others to start toying with real time data and mapping!
