Google Maps is just plain cool; I think just about everyone has worked that out by now. It that brings up that “hey I can see my house from up here” spark of recognition. Anyway, this is the view from my hotel room when I was in Manila:

And this is the same view from Google Maps.

So… is it only me who finds this interesting, because I’ve actually been there, because it’s somewhere I’ve only visited a couple of times, because it’s in another part of the world? Or is there a universal appeal in comparing these two pictures?

On a similar note, I’ve always been interested in the Degree Confluence Project.
