Science Institutions on Google Maps
PlazaScience is a Spanish website that is trying to build a world map of scientific institutions. The project is being developed by Fundación madri + d and is funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology, Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
The map uses thumbnail photographs of each institution as the map markers. Users can click on the individual photographs to be taken to a dedicated page about the institution, where they can favourite and comment on the selected scientific institution.
