Tracking the Stink on Google Maps


We have featured a number of sound maps on Google Maps Mania but I think this is the first smell map that we have come across. Japanese site Nioibu allows members to map odours that they have encountered.

Having a quick look at the site's tag cloud the smells of men, badgers, foxes, watermelon and pets seem to feature quite prominently. Some of the least pleasant smells on the map include drool, groin and self-satisfaction. I guess we can only be thankful that there isn't a scratch & sniff version of the map.
