Google Maps Mania turns 10

If you are as interested in maps as we are, then you probably already know and follow Google Maps Mania.

Yesterday, April 13th, they turned 10! Happy Birthday!

They were initially focused on Google Maps, but back then there weren’t that many other on-line maps available. Now, however, there is an extraordinary variety of maps out there. To give you a taste, just in the last few weeks they have covered:


Digital versions of medieval maps


Maps of the human body and DNA


A satellite map of Antarctica


Maps of noise


Maps of the TV series / books ‘A Game of Thrones’

And much more. So head on over and have a look!
