YouTube Readies For “Super Tuesday” With Mapping Site

Google has been plotting election results from the US presidential primaries on maps. Those maps have included candidate and news videos. But now for “Super Tuesday” (February 5), Google is doing something somewhat more ambitious over at YouTube — call it “Super Tubesday.”

The site will offer geotagged political videos from candidates, users, and various news outlets. The Google LatLong Blog explains: Anyone — from candidates and voters to members of media — can upload videos to YouTube and geotag them so they can be tracked and viewed on a Google Map that resides in the Super Tuesday channel. There will be unique markers for voters, Democratic campaigns, Republican campaigns, and news outlets so that viewers can easily determine the source of the video. The site will feature a wide range of content, from predictions and interviews to personal reflections.

Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday may determine each party’s candidate because the number of convention delegates being awarded is so large. It’s a very important day in US politics, and hopefully everyone will go out and vote for their candidate of choice.
