Google Maps now lets you measure distances between two or more points | Web tools and ideas | Scoop.it
“Google Maps on the desktop has been updated with a new feature that lets you work out the distance between multiple places by plotting your route on the map.”To use the option, you just need to right click anywhere on a map and select ‘Measure Distance’ and then select a destination to see the distance between two points. Additional stops, turns or destinations can be calculated with additional clicks. You can also drag any of your dropped route lines if you want to tweak them a bit or if you want to make them align with actual roads for more accurate route measurement, for example.

The truth is, though, unless you've actually been hacked, it's hard to appreciate just how real the prospect of cyberwar actually is. Now, though, a security company has produced a fascinating geographic map that shows you hacking attempts in real-time -- and sure enough, you really can see China waging cyberwar against the US.”Learn more:- https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2013/05/13/visual-cyber-security-see-attacks-on-real-time/- https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2013/10/27/cyber-security-is-easy-get-the-right-reflexes/
