Conceptually, a gallery of random photos doesn't seem like it should really be justified as an entry into a blog all about mapping. Sure we use aerial & satellite photography extensively enough, but what I'm talking about is obscure oddball obliques. Photos such as these, capture cultural 'colour' and visual valuablenesses that would otherwise be lost to traditional mapping techniques. So with all that being said (and with the photos' source being google maps) I am hear by 'legit' in bringing you this selection of Street View scenes
There is some pretty interesting stuff out there in the big wide world, but if I'm honest; I struggle to fully appreciate it all. I think it's because all that 'stuff' is in a different place to where I live. For example, it's hard for me to fathom just how epic the Great Wall of China actually is because I live in New Zealand and not China. It just doesn't seem relevant enough to me in my life. Well, the BBC's awesome Dimensions website is making shizz real, real like you ain't never seen, fool!
