Ogle Earth | Notes on the political and scientific impact of digital maps and geospatial imagery Plan a trip in one click Why should trip planning be any more complicated than opening your browser and entering the name of your favourite city? Six months ago we launched City Tours on Google Labs with the goal of making vacation planning as easy as searching the web. After all, Google knows the top sights in many cities around the world and we've been providing directions on Google Maps for years, so Google Labs seemed to be the perfect way to test out a combination of these two capabilities, with our computing power thrown in to sift through the thousands of possibilities. Though City Tours is still in Google Labs, the purpose was clear and the demo was popular, so we've continued to work on it over the past few months to take into account the hundreds of suggestions from users all across the globe.

Map Maker Google Map Maker officially closed on March 31, 2017, and many of its features are being integrated into Google Maps. Since 2008, the Google Map Maker community has edited and moderated millions of features to improve the Google Maps experience. To make it easier for all Google Maps users to contribute changes to the map, we’ve started to graduate functionality from Map Maker to Google Maps on both desktop and mobile. Key editing features currently available in Google Maps include: We’ll continue to add new editing features within Google Maps on an ongoing basis. To keep contributing your local knowledge to Google Maps and engage with a passionate community of likeminded individuals, we invite you to join the Local Guides program where you can do things like: Earn points Unlock rewards for submitting edits and other information Get early access to new Google Map features.

Google News Blog The World According To Google - satellite pictures of the most interesting places on the World, satellite maps » Towers There is an old legend about king Popiel and his wife Rycheza: Prince Popiel (or Duke Popiel), legendary 9th century ruler of the Polanie or Goplanie tribe. For now there is no archeological evidence of the existence of any such person. According to legend, he was the last member of pre-Piast dynasty, Popielids. According to the chroniclers Gallus Anonymus, Jan Długosz and Marcin Kromer, as a consequence of bad rule he was removed from the throne and died eaten alive by mice (or rats) in a tower in the Kruszwica settlement. As the legend goes, Prince Popiel was an inadequate ruler who cared only for wine, women, and song and who was greatly influenced by his wife Ryska, a beautiful German princess who desired power.

Google City Tours updated: Be your own tourguide 29 December '09, 12:16pm Follow City Tours is one of the many projects bubbling away in Google’s Labs and it’s just received an update that makes the service much more customisable – but is it any good? City Tours was launched in mid-2009 and uses Google’s database of landmarks and attractions to create tour itineraries for cities. Until now the service allowed you to enter a city name and return a map featuring a route taking you around all the most popular sites. The service smartly takes into account opening times and dates for attractions so that it doesn’t guide you to places it thins are closed. Google’s Zurich-based team has now announced a number of updates that make City Tours much more useful. First up, you can now import your own custom maps containing only the landmarks you want to visit and Google will try its best to create a tour around all of them. So, how does it fare? Gripes aside; when City Tours works, it works well.

Parking Lot Road Policy I am new to Google Map Maker, but I am really enjoying myself. One thing that confuses me, however, is the way Google Maps treat roads within parking lots. While it may make sense to show major distributor roads within parking lots, many users map every single parking aisle. For example, here is a shopping center near where I live, where new roads were recently added: Woodbine, the north/south street, should be a terminal road. Example #2 is an area I am working on. I have been trying to remove Western Ave, Davis St, and Jones Ave, because these roads are gone. So, I propose that parking lots should be represented by polygons, except for terminal roads that lead from an actual street into the parking lot without giving direct access to spaces.
