Television and Google Maps

HBO is getting into the Google Mash-up game.  As a promotional tool for the new season of The Sopranos, you can view scences from the upcoming season plotted onto a map.  How is this fictional mapping different from the story mapping that is taking place in so much digital art?  Aren’t both dissecting narrative and plotting into spatial coordinates?  In fact, the depth of experience one might comprehend in an episode of the Sopranos is perhaps greater than what one might possess in a personal story.
