Amazing, Addictive, and Creative Uses of Google Earth and Google Maps
Google Maps and Google Earth are pretty awesome on their own—you can see the whole world on your laptop in the comfort of your living room. But what's even more awesome is the myriad way artists and developers are using these tools to create games, videos and photo series that are a delight to the eye. Here are a few to check out.
Daniel Schwartz, a computer science student in Berlin, created the "juxtapose" project, a series of images taken from Google Maps, shown side by side, but in contrasting seasons and weather conditions.
"The images arise from glitches which are created automatically when Google Maps’ algorithm stitches images of updated photos with prior recorded ones together in a grid-like view," he writes on his website.
