Photos from the ISS Mapped

Like thousands of over people around the world I have been avidly following Cmdr Chris Hadfield's Twitter account, during his mission aboard the International Space Station.

One of the features of Cmdr Hadfield's tweets has been his amazing photos of Earth taken from the ISS. While viewing the photos I've often hoped that someone would undertake the task of mapping them - and of course someone has.
