New Zealand on Google Maps

Mike Pegg here from Google Maps Mania just letting you know I posted another roundup of New Zealand Google Maps mashups. Among the latest is a map of all New Zealand windfarms and a guided tour of New Zealand satellite maps on Google. I've also assembled all previous mashups I've made mention of in the past in this post.

Here is the permalink for the post:

And the short URL for my blog for folks to remember:

http://www.gmapsmania.com

Also, not sure if you've taken a look at the new Google Maps site that lets you tag locations "wiki-style".. It's called Wikimapia:

http://www.wikimapia.org

Here is New Zealand specifically:

http://www.wikimapia.org/#y=-41294317&
x=173847656&z=6&l=0&m=a

(You see more locations the further down you zoom)

I personally think it's one of the BEST innovations to come from the Google Maps mashup frenzy and it even includes quite a few wiki'ed up spots around New Zealand. You can just use it to explore places or select a specific point on the map using the satellite layer. After quickly framing the spot you can enter a text description for the next person to read about, or quite easily, change if the text is wrong. All very similar to Wikipedia.com. I really like it and spend hours on it just browsing around. I'm also in touch with the guys that have created it in Russia if you wanted to make contact. AWESOME site.

Good Luck,

Mike.
