Friday Fun with Google Maps

Limerick Crime Map

There was an Old Person of Cromer,
Who stood on one leg to read Homer;
When he found he grew stiff, he jumped over the cliff,
Which concluded that Person of Cromer.

The classic limericks of Edward Lear are full of appalling incidents (and even more appalling rhymes). Staircase3 has therefore decided that it is only fit to present his limerick's in the form of a crime map.

The limericks are marked on this Google Map by the given location of each main culprit.

Postcards from Google Earth: Bridges

Artist Clement Valla has created a series of postcards created from satellite images of bridges captured from Google Earth. The strange distortion of the bridges in the images does create some interesting and surreal views.

Drag & Drop Street View

This little Street View application lets you find the Street View for any location in the world and drag & drop images to create your own montage. The images available mainly consist of cartoon cars and women.
