Visualizing all the f1 circuits on Google Earth and Maps

Yesterday, I showed how to get all the f1 circuit names and locations using the Ergast API along with the Rest-Excel library.

Now we have that data to play with, why not visualize them on Google Earth or Maps using a vizMap application generated straight from the data.

A little parameter tweaking gives us all the f1 circuits ever, plotted on Google Earth or Maps, and we can fly around them and have a look to see which ones are still actually tracks. Later I’ll add some charts and tables with race stats. Here’s a look at the Abu Dhabi track from the vizMap application.

Download the GoogleMapping.xlsm workbook from the ramblings site, and generate your own. Why not follow this blog or join our forum to watch out for when I put some stats on this.

I am a Google Developer Expert and decided to investigate Google Apps Script in my spare time. The more I investigated the more content I created so this site is extremely rich. Now, in 2019, a lot of things have disappeared or don’t work anymore due to Google having retired some stuff. I am however leaving things as is and where I came across some deprecated stuff, I have indicated it. I decided to write a book about it and to also create videos to teach developers who want to learn Google Apps Script. If you find the material contained in this site useful, you can support me by buying my books and or videos.
