Join the inauguration without leaving home

You don’t have to go all the way to Washington to join in the excitement of tomorrow’s inauguration.

Find out what’s happening and where with an interactive map. The map highlights points of interest and the path of the parade the president will lead en route to the White House after he takes the oath of office at the U.S. Capitol. The interactive map that MSNBC has posted for the inauguration of our 44th President, Barack Obama, features Microsoft Virtual Earth.

Want to find out more? Read about the use of Virtual Earth on MSNBC on the Virtual Earth blog.

Another exciting way to get your inauguration fix is the largest and “most detailed experience of a single moment ever.” In partnership with CNN, the Photosynth team is enabling an experience that lets users upload photos during the inauguration, which will then automagically be stitched together to capture “The Moment.” Check out the full details at the Virtual Earth blog.

    I really liked the interactive map thing. Would be neat if MSNBC had this cool page/application where you could see an entire Virtual Earth globe, and whenever a news alert (which you could customize to your preferences) comes up, it takes you directly to the location on the globe where it occured.

    Nice interaction. How is the map made? Javascript? Love the images with the tooltips.
