We’re looking at how we can use googlemaps better - I’ve been amazed to see what’s out there!
One of the best places to look for the latest and coolest is googlemapsmania - really worth a look and a bookmark to come back to later.
Here’s some links to maps I’ve looked at recently that are really worth checking out for function and form.:
NOCA interactive map - The sites listed are a small representation of the many excellent modern sites in the San Francisco Bay Area. They have been chosen for the website because they represent a range of building types, architects and geography.
Historypin - sticking photo’s to places and giving them a story - another lovely little storytelling site that caters for history and travel interested folks.
