Random Google Maps


Have you ever wanted to explore the world at random? Have no idea where to go for your next vacation? Or just want to discover what's out there? geo.pick helps you find places that you never knew existed.

geo.pick chooses a city and country at random from anywhere in the world and shows its location to you on Google Maps. It is possible to pick a random location from anywhere in the world or to get a random location from a chosen continent.

As well as showing you the random location on Google Maps geo.pick displays statistics about the city from the Finland World Database and images from Google Search.

MapCrunch - Random Street View

Do you feel lucky?

This fun Google Maps application displays a random Street View image from anywhere in the world. To view a random image from Street View all you have to do is press the 'Go' button.

If you want to narrow down the randomness of the image you can select to view only Street View imagery from particular countries. Each country with Street View imagery has its own button and each can be set to on or off. MapCrunch also offers the option to avoid country roads.

My favourite button however is the 'auto' button which allows the user to just sit back and watch as a succesion of random Street Views appear on your screen.

Google Street View Roulette

Street View Funny, the Street View Gallery website, created this Street View randomiser a while back now. Street View roulette is restricted to imagery from the UK. To play Street View Roulette just press the 'Random Google Street View' button.

I am perpetually lost. I'm always finding places I didn't know existed as I find my way home from the grocery store. Can GeoPic guide me home?
