Look at the picture below. Enlarge it as you please. Do you notice anything weird? Read on.
I’ve been playing around with Google Earth, and had a very good time. It’s a kind of voyeur, although not in real time. I had the chance to find out where some of my friends live, provided if they live within the high resolution map area, unlike my house, which lies in the blurry map (not blurryreen) area.
Better still, there’s a road mapping service, to show the road map from point A to point B. It’s very simple. Just click on your starting point, and then click on your destination. Google Earth will provide you with the road map, much like a GPS mapping system. This function, however, is currently operational in US and some other developed country that have their own GPS mapping/positioning system only. You can add your own mapping service, using the Path function provided.
In Malaysia, at least in the high resolution map region, some people had taken it up to them to name the major locations. This is most prominent in Kuala Lumpur. Nobody has yet to provide paths to and from those locations, but I’m sure that will change, soon.
I know this has nothing to do with the picture above. It’s not even in Asia, moreover Malaysia. Just giving you time to read and ponder some thoughts. See what I saw? Here’s what I spotted in that picture.
