Smile Google Maps Allows for Virtual Tourism

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/laycock/004243.html


Some Snippets:

"While Google Maps was probably hoping that Internet users would enjoy the practical side of their new satellite image technology, it was also likely that they expected people to have a little bit of fun with it. Sure enough, two Scottish brothers and one of their co-workers have banded together to launch a Blog devoted to all the fun places you can "visit" via Google Maps. "


Users visit the Google Maps site and type in an address. Once a map pops up, users select the "satellite" link from the top right corner of the screen and they can get an aerial photograph of the location they've searched for.

Fun Stuff! You can see your own House!
