It’s a busy, busy summer, everyone. Planning a wedding & honeymoon, going to everyone else’s weddings and related events, renos, shirt printing, house shopping, planning a Rocket Science website rejiggering, etc, etc, etc… So it’s been hard to find time to draw or blog.
But I’m still alive, I just got my invite to the new Google maps, and it’s pretty cool. So here’s some stuff on that!
Instead of map/satellite toggle, you can jump from map to ‘earth view’ on the fly. Earth view contains 3d models of every building, which you can pan and rotate at will. I don’t know how they do it, and I defy you to not spend at least minutes scoping out your neighborhood!
The search is also much better now. It remembers where you go, what you like, and it’ll even zoom to a specific landmark as you type them into the search box. And the maps are much more attractive color-wise to boot!
Anyway, that’s it for now. Much more to explore, but looking really good so far! Have a peek at a few screen shots below from my ‘hood. Click to enlarge.
Will post again soon…When I can!
