The Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games start with Opening Ceremonies on March 15. An Andrew Harris has published on his blog a Google Earth map of some of the venues and includes some paths showing the routes of some of the races. The Melbourne, Australia area has some pretty high resolution satellite photos, so it’s worth checking out if you have plans to visit. Andrew says this is his first Google Earth file, and I think this is an excellent first product. Interestingly, there doesn’t appear to be any maps at the official web site (a security step perhaps?). Thanks to Mike at GoogleMapsMania for bringing this to my attention.
