Friday Fun on Google Maps

According to Google Maps it is possible to get from Intercourse to Climax in just under four hours. Any complaints that it never takes you that long should be addressed to Google

Art Fag City

The website Art Fag City has an interesting essay looking at Google Maps Street View as a cultural text, providing an invaluable insight into urban and rural America. Oh, and they also have a great collection of Street View images accompanying the essay.

The New York Times has an article about Tomasz Berezinski's attempts to create GPS track drawings by running and cycling around New York. Tomasz plans, then runs (or cycles) the route with his GPS device to record his progress. He then uploads the “drawing” he has made to everytrail.com.
