Commute Tulsa

 

That's a picture of my commute to work. Fun, fun, fun - every morning and evening.  Woo-hoo!

 

OK, but enough about me.  I posted that to demonstrate one of the many features of Google Maps.  Here's another example.

 

Philbrook Museum

 

That's Philbrook Museum, a local landmark.  I can get all sorts of photos of it and many other landmarks using the "photos" link.  The next thing you're going to want to is find yourself on the map, and drag the little man on the viewfinder to your address at "street view" level. Of course, everyone who is interested in your wherabouts can do the same thing, but don't worry, the photos aren't live.

 

Tulsa Street View

 

So go ahead, and explore the world from the comfort of your living room.  Check out the sites discussed on the news in Japan (before the earthquake, obviously), or what the town you grew up in looks like now.  The world is your oyster. Check it out, at maps.google.com.
