Cartography Tricks

Maps are fun. Especially obedient maps. This blog catalogs some of the nifty things people have done with the Google Maps API. (from boing boing)

Here's a trick. A couple of years ago, I moved to Ithaca, NY. It's a good place to live.
Here's Google's map listing the Sushi restaurants in Ithaca:
For contrast, here's a map showing the sushi restaurants in my hometown of Flint, Michigan:

Now look what happens when you search in Flint for "Guns":
Thanks everybody, next show's at nine. I'll be here all week.

When somebody climbs in through your bathroom window at three AM which would you rather have in your hand, a gun, or a raw fish?

I would like to contact you for an article I am researching, but everytime I click on the "contact" link, it causes my Internet Explorer to crash.

Do you think that it could be a problem with the mapping program and not a problem with Flint? Corner of Linden and Corunna Roads. It's called Sagano; it's damn good, and I bet it's a lot cheaper than anyplace in Ithaca. Sushi on me next time you're home, hope things are swell, Joel
