“Map My Summer” with YouTube

YouTube Map My Summer [youtube.com] is a new YouTube experiment that tries to provide a more meaningful interface to recently submitted Australian videos. In the end, the project should create a compelling archive of the events, experiences and people from all around Australia during summer (remember, it is summer now down under).

In essence, the project tries to filter the related metadata according to the categories Activity, People or Place, while it maps all the videos on a (unfortunately invisible…) map of Australia. As a result, people can discover those specific videos that take place on a beach, show extraterrestrials, or somehow relate to a wedding. In addition, statistical data about the submitted movies according to their geographical location can be discovered through interactive donut graphs that are colored according to the three categories.
