The Global Flight Map

Category: Google Maps | Oct 27, 2014

This Air Traffic map is a beautiful visualization of aircraft routes around the world. The map simply plots all international and domestic passenger air routes across the globe using green lines on a black background.

Simply by plotting international and domestic flights a fairly clear map of the world emerges. Africa and North & South America can be distinctly seen in the air traffic data.

The 17th Century Mapped Guide to Pomerania

Category: Google Maps | Oct 25, 2014

The Seventeenth Century mathematician and philosopher Eilhard Lubinus was commissioned in 1610 to create a map of Pomerania. Lubinus.pl has made the inspired decision to use Lubinus’ beautiful Pomerania map as the basis for a guided tour of the region.

Mapy Lubinusa uses the Google Maps API to turn Lubinus’ Seventeenth Century map into an interactive guide for visitors to modern day Pomerania.

The Seattle Coffee Map

Category: Google Maps | Oct 24, 2014

Apparently there are one or two places to get a good cup of coffee in Seattle. If too much choice confuses then you might want to check out Seattle Eater’s maps.

Seattle Eater has a huge range of Google Maps which can help you find not only the best coffee shop but also (huge breath) …. the best restaurants for cheap eats, the best vegetarian restaurants, the best pizza restaurants, the

Map Out the Trash

Category: Google Maps | Oct 24, 2014

I’ve always liked the potential of the Google Maps API for creating applications to help citizens report local problems to local government. For example, in the UK FixMyStreet.com
allows anyone to report, view, or discuss local problems and will pass on the reported problems to the relevant local
council.

TrashOut is another Google Maps based application with a similar aim to allow anyone to

700 Red Dots & 4,000 Holes

Category: Google Maps | Oct 23, 2014

Clickhole has created a static map of 700 Red Dots in the USA. The map is an effective visualization of a remarkable number of red dots throughout the US. However the use of a static map does mean that the exact location of each red dot is a little hard to read. The map would be a lot more effective if you were able to zoom in and pan the map.

The 700 Red Dots map is a great example of a map

Mapping the Ebola Response

Category: Google Maps | Oct 23, 2014

The OpenStreetMap of Guéckédou before HOT mapping

The current Ebola outbreak started in Guéckédou, in southeastern Guinea. The disease soon spread to other nearby Guinea towns and then to Liberia and Sierra Leone.

One of the biggest problems for aid agencies and health organizations in responding to the crisis was the lack of good maps in the areas where Ebola has been most prevalent. This is
