Friday Fun with Google Maps

Bing Recommends Google Maps

If you do a Bing search for 'maps' its top recommendation is Google Maps. Bing Maps has made huge strides in the last couple of years but obviously still needs to try a little harder to truly impress Microsoft.

Wolf Geoglyph

This picture of a wolf was created with a bicycle and a GPS unit.

The wolf also just happens to be the logo of G4, the site hosting this map track. G4 allows anyone to save their GPS tracks, keep a record of their favourite places, store their geotagged photos and manage their geospatial data. Or you could just create your own geoglyph.

If you think that is impressive then check out this map of Warwick University created by walking 238 miles around the campus with a GPS unit. Now that is impressive.

Synchronised Car Crashes

"You turn left and I'll turn right and let's see if we can hit the signs at the same time."
