Oh My Sweet Timelord

OMG the Daleks have invaded the TARDIS!

We had to somehow celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr Who on Google Maps Mania. Luckily the TARDIS does feature on Street View. So if you want to take a personal tour of the Doctor's time & space ship on Google Maps you can. And yes, it is bigger on the inside.

After 50 years of trying we also thought that it was about time that the Daleks were allowed inside the TARDIS. So here is a Dalek inside the TARDIS.

I created this little view using the Teammaps Street View Overlay Library. The library is licensed under the Apache License so you can use it to create your own Street View applications with marker overlays.

I don't think the possibilities of Street View overlays have been fully explored yet. This Street View Restaurant Table Booking System gives you some idea of the possibilities of using overlays with Street View.

But - back to the sci-fi. Google Sightseeing has put together a great post looking at locations that have appeared on Dr Who over the last 50 years.
