Map fun...

Today we are going to have a little fun using Google maps...

Go here to start- TerraClues and do the free demonstration.

Google Sightseeing lets you see the sights of the world without leaving your chair.

Then pop over to HistoryPin to view photographs from history using Google Maps.  You can compare images from the past side by side with images of the present.

The Wilderness Downtown is an interactive film created as a Chrome experiment.  The video uses data from Google maps to create a user customized video to Arccade Fire's song We Used to Wait.

MapCrunch is another fun site using google maps that allows you to teleport between random locations in 30 different countries.

Finally, if you would like to create your own treasure hunt using Google Maps go here.
