Interesting Diversion

I discoved PlaceOpedia (http://www.placeopedia.com). It connects Wikipedia articles with their locations using Google maps (http://maps.google.com).

Here’s my diversion.

  1. Set the map to be at it most Zoomed in. click the + (Zoom In) control box in the left side of the map.
  2. Click on button “Random place”.
  3. Try to guess where the place is as you Zoom out one level at a time (the – box).

 Some entries will give themselves away with their name but others will challenge your sense of geography.
