South Africa: Cape Town Magazine first to release Soccer World Cup Google

October 30, 2007 • Gadgets and Gaming, Top Stories

Cape Town internet magazine the first to release 2010 Google Earth Map.
In Cape Town the first extensive Google Earth map with Soccer Stadiums, Airports, Host Cities and Fan Parks for South Africa’s
2010 Soccer World Cup was launched by CapeTownMagazine.com, Cape Town’s largest internet magazine in English, German and Dutch.

Marc Zandhuis, Managing Director of CapeTownMagazine.com, explains: CapeTownMagazine.com created an innovative South African Google Earth Map, a .kml file, that displays all the 2010 Stadium locations, the host cities,(new) airports close to host cities, the location of the office of the 2010 Local Organising Committee and likely fan park locations.

Every location visually shows the location, and the place mark contains images of each specific location, information and links to
relevant articles for further reading on the website. It is an awesome experience to fly over South Africa and see these locations
already with images and information.

The quite unique map of CapeTownMagazine.com automatically updates with new locations the moment they become known. This means people (and press) only need to download it once to be on top of all
information with regards to 2010.

In 2006 CapeTownMagazine.com was credited by one of the leading Google Earth Weblogs for being the first travel magazine to use Google Earth in its format. (Gearthblog.com 11-10-2006).

For media we created easy url’s to use in print publications and weblogs on the 2010 Soccer World Cup to publish, for example: www.CapeTownMagazine.com/google-earth-2010
