Hacking Google Maps and Google Earth (ExtremeTech)

Going somewhere? Or just getting back?

 

Great vacation photos—too bad you can't remember where you took them. And wouldn't it have been terrific to find a pizza joint when you bumped into your college buddy in that little ski town? Well, by making Google Maps and Google Earth do your bidding, you can find out not only where you're going, but where you've been. Get an aerial view of the beach in that picture. Pinpoint every Thai takeout in your girlfriend's zip code. Plan the Great International Rollercoaster Tour.
