Send a Google Maps GeoGreeting to your friends!
Here's a fun new website for you geo-geeks out there that combines the online greeting concept with Google Maps satellite imagery. GeoGreeting lets you send a greeting from real buildings found on Google Maps that are in the shape of letters! The "A" I typed for my Google Maps Mania title above brings me to a building in Hamburg, Germany while "E" is represented by a building in Chicago. The tool is pretty easy to use.. Simply type your message, then send the link out to your friends. They see a cool animated zoom in on each of the letters of your greeting as it gets spelled out for them.. Good times! :)
[Thanks to Frank Taylor of the Google Earth Blog for the tip!]
