War Games on Google Maps

Category: Google Maps | Oct 26, 2013

Given the potential of a game world that encompasses the whole globe I am surprised that no-one has yet managed to create a truly addictive military conquest or RISK type game with the Google Maps API.

In fact the best military themed games developed with the Google Maps API have been more shoot-em-up than strategy based games. The best two examples of shooting games are probably MapsTD, a

Scroll Across the World in Street View

Category: Google Maps | Oct 25, 2013

I’ve become tired of pressing the forward arrows in Street View to keep moving forward, so I decided to create a little application that allows you to use the scroll-bar or mouse scroll-wheel to move forward and backwards in Street View.

Scroll Around the World is simple to use. Just keep scrolling down the page to take a virtual stroll across some Street View scenes from around the world. If
