Clever Red Lines on Google Maps

GOOGLE MAPS ARE SO SMART. I use Google Maps to see all sorts of things, including red lines that show slowdowns of traffic.

In the screenshot accompanying this blog post, you can see red lines perpendicular to the railway line leading into Clonmel. I am the blue dot on the map. The blue dot is an Irish Rail train.

Anyone with an Android phone who has geolocation data turned on will provide Google data about relative speed on roads, parking spots and the time they go to cinemas.

I like sharing my movement data because I feel I am getting intelligent travel information in return. How about you?
