Washington DC Memorials on Google Maps
The National Capital Planning Commission has released a Google Map, called Memorials in Washington DC, to help users locate and learn about commemorative works in Washington, DC.
The memorials displayed on the map can be filtered by theme. Each information window includes a brief description of the memorial and a link to read about the full history and significance of each memorial.
The map also includes a Foursquare leaderboard. If you log-in with a Foursquare account you can see how you rank amongst other users of the map in your number of check-ins made at Washington DC memorials.
