Google Maps Cube

Everyone uses Google Maps, mostly without enjoying the process very much (have to go some place, hurry, can’t find it, will be late, etc). Recently Google created a Google Chrome game called Cube, to make us all understand how awesome Google Maps is to explore your world (I am an easy victim obviously). The game is all about exploring the city in 3D Google Maps, and it looks like this. But as with most games: looks at its best whilst playing, so here you go: http://www.playmapscube.com/ (Use Google Chrome)

The winners are….

We have a winner (well, two actually)! Maps and the City had the opportunity to give away a passe-partout to two lucky MATC-readers, for the cultural night festival Nuit Blanche Amsterdam.

Find yourself some warm clothes and don’t forget to bring a map of Amsterdam, because you are going on an urban expedition this Saturday: Sjoerd van Sprang and Rozan Dekker!
Please send me an email today, so Nuit Blanche Amsterdam can send you your passe-partout in time. Enjoy!
