Friday Fun with Google Maps

All Roads Lead to NYC

Flickr user Scloopy has created a rather beautiful photoset 'Everywhere to Here' of Google Maps screenshots, showing traffic directions to a particular direction from just about everywhere else. Also check out his cool Chrome Canopy Experiment.


I'm sure no criticism is implied in this Street View of a BlackBerry ad.

Google Maps Imaginary Town

In the UK, Google's map coverage is so good it has even mapped towns that the locals didn't know were there. The town Argleton is clearly shown on Google Maps in the north west of England, even though no such town exists.

The fact that the town doesn't actually exist didn't stop the Walking Home to 50 blog packing up a picnic and setting off for a day-trip.
