This isn’t a sight I’m afraid, just a quick update… Has anyone else noticed that Google have finally put a scale on their maps?
Update: Yup, sorry it appears I missed the boat. There’s an article over on Scavengeroogle about it already
Update 2: Oops. Googlemapsmania had it first, and apparently we told them about it! Who knew? However, a comment on this post points something very cool out. Tobin said:
did you notice that if you’re looking at the initial view (the entire US), when you scroll around the map, the scale changes? I assume it’s because the curvature of the earth.
Try it out, it’s cool!
