Google maps "explore"

Just happened to stumble upon a new feature on Google Maps called “explore”.

To experience it, just go to:

http://maps.google.com then search for a location, say “Seattle, WA”

and it loads photos, popular searches and videos from around that location.

Very cool – this kind of data aggregation is interesting – but I was surprised that this content was “on” by default for me.

Nonetheless, it gets definitely interesting to see what others do with this kind of integration…
