Torch Relay on Google Map

After the Flame-lighting Ceremony in Ancient Olympia in March 2008, the 2008 Beijing Olympics torch relay started from the Flame Handover Ceremony in Beijing.  Google map in China cooperates with CCTV (China Central Television) to set up the Google Torch Relay Route Map

The whole route of the torch relay is shown on the Torch Relay map, and the cities are listed on the left.  You can click on the list to see more information and images about the cities.  The red part of the route means that the Torch Relay has passed those cities. 


You can also watch the news video of the torch relay in this city, which is a great combination of Google maps and Google video


You can add this map into your blog by adding some code segment, and share with your friends.  Currently the Torch Relay map is only in simplified Chinese, but would have English, French, Spanish and etc. language version later on.
