The storm Filomena has brought to the Iberian Peninsula a storm of cold and snow record, which has inevitably caused the blocking of numerous roads and the temporary cessation restriction of various means of public transport.
In Madrid, snow cleaning services and 135 snow plow They work piecemeal to clear snow from the streets and districts, and an easy way to keep abreast of which streets are already snow-free, according to Madrid City Council itself, is through a map of the state of snow clearance created with the help of Google My Maps.
The streets without snow, in Google Maps
While the device of 6220 people and 135 snow plows works to unblock the streets of Madrid from snow, it is difficult to follow the evolution, given that there are more than one hundred streets spread over the 21 districts of the capital. Luckily there is a visual and faster way to follow the progress of cleaning: on Google Maps.
This time it is not a new layer, like COVID-19, coordinated by Google and incorporated directly into Google Maps, but rather a personalized map created by the Madrid City Council
The map, created yesterday, is described as “Control of roads. Exclusive use of municipal services of the Ayta de Madrid”, although it already adds more than 2 million views and it is public. That is, anyone can consult it from the PC or mobile, from this link.
Included in the map are blue lines on the streets where the snow has cleared and, although we do not know how many times it has been updated or how often, it has been completed over the last few hours, covering a large part of the capital in blue.
