This book makes a great Christmas gift. The book is by the guys at GoogleSightseeing.com – a blog which shows interesting sites found in the Google Earth and Google Maps imagery. I just received a copy of the book and wanted to show you a short video clip of what it looks like:
James and Alex Turnbull are brothers who created the site and decided to publish a book with a sample of their content. They got permission to publish high quality prints of the satellite photos and the book is called “Off the Map – The Most Amazing Sights on Earth as Seen by Satellite“. In the UK the same book will go by “Not in the Guide Book – The wackiest sights in Google Earth, as seen by Googlesightseeing.com“. The book contains nearly 100 amazing sights of the Earth from satellite photos with information about each sight. The photos look fantastic on the page. It’s still better to look at them with Google Earth, but it makes you better appreciate the quality of the photos to see them in print. Give this book out to folks who don’t understand why you like Google Earth or Maps so much.
The book is now available through Amazon, which you can buy here. I highly recommend it. I’m ordering a few for Christmas gifts!
