Walking in the Air on Google Maps
This year the Snowman is visiting your street!
It's nearly Christmas, that special time of year when we get lots of special Google Maps and Street View promotional campaigns. This year the first to get in on the act is chocolate company Thorntons, with a magical online Christmas Card featuring Raymond Briggs' cute Snowman character (and Google Maps).
The Thorntons Facebook Christmas Message application allows you to send an animated Christmas message to a friend in which the Snowman flies over their house (using Google Maps satellite imagery) and even walks down their street (using Street View).
