Fun with Maps
We’ve been having a lot of fun recently with a game called GeoGuessr. It drops you into Google Maps Streetview at a random location, and you have to guess where you are. Our best score so far is 12,383.
The other fun mapping toy this week is that Google wrapped up a bunch of Landsat data from 1984 to the present so that you can play it like a movie. It’s fun to pick some place which you know has changed over the last couple of decades (e.g. the beaches around Chatham) and watch it happen in real time.
