Anyone for Cricket?

Both forms of the World Cup are over and the Northern Winter looms over Great Britain. But for those of us you a little further South, a sensational summer of cricket is just getting started.

Domestic competitions have kicked off in Australia, South Africa, and The West Indies (and starting soon in Pakistan); and one-day and test series are already underway in South Africa, Sri Lanka, India, and Australia. With so much cricket spread so far around the world, what better time to launch a mega cricket maps mashup?

Hit for Six was written entirely in the Google Mashup Editor with data coming from Dapper, Google Calendar, and Google Spreadsheets. It makes use of a few cool new GME tricks (like real-time geocoding) so I'll write a follow up post early next week explaining some of the tricks I learned putting it together.

    Mumbai cricket ground appears off the coast of Nigeria on my screen

  3. I update the grounds each day whenever there's a new one that I haven't placed yet. Until that happens new grounds appear at coordinates 0,0 (off the coast of Nigeria). Shouldn't stay that way for more than a couple of hours :)

  4. Awesome writing ,good job
