30 Great Google Maps - The Video

I've been thinking for a while about how to liven up the excellent 100 Things to do with Google Maps list, which was created by Mike Pegg. I've also been thinking for a while about putting together a slide show of screenshots of great Google Maps mash-ups for when I'm asked to do presentations.

I eventually decided a great idea would be to do a video of screen captures of some of the more visual Google Maps mashups. Eventually I plan to do a hundred but for now here's the first 30.

Google Maps Mania - The Movie from Keir Clarke on Vimeo.

Update: You can even now view the video with captions:

These are the first 20 maps (in order):
  1. The World in 3D
  2. Mini Flight Sim
  3. Star Viewer
  4. The Kremer Collection
  5. TrekinU
  6. iMap Weather
  7. TimeSpace: World
  8. Real-time Swiss Trains Map
  9. Twittervision
  11. Virtual Tourism
  12. Seero
  13. Streetviewr
  14. V-Trafic
  15. US Oil Imports Map
  16. Virtual Africa
  17. Biodiversity Heat Maps
