    That WAS very interesting, esp. 'places Britain has NOT invaded' (few) and the population densities of Paris and southeast Asia! :shock:

    Fascinating stuff. I am sure the U.S. will be the last country to go metric publically. I sure wish it would so I could "get" Field measurements.

    Be sure and check out the MapPorn link near the end of the introduction. Hundreds of maps like these, with a search function, too.

    Thanks. My son teaches AP Human Geography. He'll have a lot of fun with this.

    Agreed. I like "walking" through towns that I pick at random using the street view. In addition, viewing the intricacies of the mapped ocean floor is fascinating.

    Beautiful maps of Shackleton's 1907-09 expedition (use the full-screen, roam, and zoom functions, which are really smooth):
