Friday Fun with Google Maps

Harry Beck's famous map design for the London Underground must be one of the most copied designs ever. This Under Skin map is a great Human Body Map in the now familiar Harry Beck style.

Google Sightseeing found this giant three headed elephant in the new Thailand Street View imagery.

If you want to break Google Maps try searching for the North Pole. It seems that the Mercator Projection used by Google Maps struggles with the North Pole. If you do want to find the position of the North Pole on Google Maps, you can turn on the Google Earth view.
