Visualizing Road Direction Patterns

Category: Google Maps | Mar 26, 2014

Over the last few days Visual Statistix has been publishing a nice series of maps showing the road direction patterns in American and European cities. These static maps with accompanying rose diagrams are a great visualization of urban road patterns. They are particularly illuminating in illustrating the differences between the planned grid-patterns of American cities and the more organic

Zweefvlieg is a new Google Map that displays Notices To Airmen (NOTAMs) that could affect Dutch gliders. NOTAMs are messages issued by governmental agencies that warn pilots and operators of aircraft of last minute changes that could affect a flight, such as the closure of a section of airspace.

Why are foreigners so rude?

Category: Google Maps | Mar 25, 2014

It can be tough being an English speaker travelling abroad, especially in countries where they don’t speak English. I find that the louder I shout at foreigners to help them understand the ruder they get.

This is obviously a common experience of people when travelling abroad. At least judging by my Nationalities Autocomplete Map. This map shows the autocomplete suggestions of Google search

One of the great features of this wizard for creating your own Google search autocomplete maps is that you can use a kml of your own locations. This morning I created a kml of all the English Premier League teams to find out what the Google autocomplete suggestions were for English

Why is Australia so hot?

Category: Google Maps | Mar 24, 2014

I’ve been feeling a bit sorry for Australia. Recently I’ve being seeing a lot of those Google search autocomplete maps for American states and European countries but none exclusively for Australia. I’ve therefore used Map Channels’ awesome new¬†Autocomplete Map Maker to create a couple of Australian autocomplete maps.

The Why is Australia map shows the Google autocomplete results for Australian
