Friday Fun with Google Maps

Don't Lose Your Marbles

By now you must have heard that there is a Google Maps based game coming to Google+ next month. If you can't wait until February then you could instead create your own analogue version of the game.

Pegman's Day

This advert for Wired magazine seems to show what Pegman gets up to after a busy day of guiding the world around on Street View.

Athen's Public Transit Simulation

The developer behind the great Athens Public Transit Planner has created this amazing map simulation of a day in the life of the Athens Public Transport system.

Artistic Google

Artistic Google is a Google+ account that encourages its followers to create artistic images from Google Maps Street View. Every Monday a new location is announced and the account's followers then find an interesting Street View picture and create something a bit more artistic from the image using photo editing software.
