Saw this in the news today.

Thought it was going to just be a documentary, pure video.

After the first 5 minute clip finished, it brought me to an unusual map. It's interactive, move your mouse around to navigate and click markers for other clips.

It makes it feel like you are watching something in real-time.

That's a great use of technology.

Thanks for the link - I really enjoyed the exploration. This type of interactivity is what I expected many, many years ago when I first heard the term "interactive map."

Does anyone have any insights on how they put it together?

UPDATE:

http://www.vancouver...0156/story.html

From the story:

LAKE LOUISE - A two-and-a-half-year-old grizzly bear left orphaned when his mother was plowed down by a train last year has made it through the busy summer months - but the fate of his sibling is not known for sure.

The young bruin, known as Bear 128, was last seen hanging out on the slopes of the Lake Louise ski hill, but he has not been traveling with another bear all summer long and had not been seen with his sibling since May.

The mother of the young grizzly bears was killed on the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks on May 28, 2011, in what was considered a blow to the regional grizzly population, which is estimated to be around 60.
