Google Maps And YouTube Mashup Catalogs Nirvana Concert Footage
Online app 'A World of Nirvana' lets fans search for the band's performances by year.
A World of Nirvana is a website created as a tribute to Kurt Cobain. The online app uses Google Maps and YouTube APIs to create a catalog of Nirvana live concert footage. You can select the year you want to see videos from, between 1987 and 1994. The location of the concerts are then shown on a Google map and when you click on one of the icons, the site pulls videos of that concert from YouTube and plays it in an info window.
You can also scroll through the list at the top of the page to see all of the available concert videos for that year, with the date and location Nirvana played at. The quality of the videos isn’t amazing but there is rare footage and compressed full versions, some lasting over an hour. This collection of videos is great for nostalgic fans, enhancing and simplifying their search experience so they can enjoy listening to the band in live settings around the world.
