Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 20, 2013 2:33 AM

For me exploring the neighborhoods of Redlands was incredibly nostalgic since it reminds me so much of the part of Burbank that I grew up in, but haven’t had much opportunity to visit since.  I left  Burbank, CA when I 11 and the next year the city’s landscapes became the set for the TV show “The Wonder Years.”  I was 12 just like Kevin Arnold was, and despite a serious lack of Winnie Cooper in my youth, the show still resonates with me as does the Southern California landscape.

Tips for the Google Maps Guessing Game

Tips for the Google Maps Guessing Game | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"Some online quiz games are rendered pointless by Google. But here’s one that would be impossible without it: GeoGuessr, a “where in the world are you?” guessing game that drops you into a Google Street View locale from somewhere on Earth and challenges you to place your location on a map.


Those who have tried it can attest to its addictive qualities—and the head-smacking frustration that ensues when you confidently drop your pin on the plains of Texas only to find out you were actually looking at a scene from Alberta, Canada, some 2,000 miles to the north. Or when you congratulate yourself for instantly identifying a quintessential Dutch town square—that turns out to be a Dutch theme park in Nagasaki, Japan."
