Google Book Search & Google Maps Team Up
The Google Book Search Blog announced a new feature they worked on together with Google Maps that shows you “places mentioned in this book” on the Google Book Search page. For example a Google Book Search result for Illustrated New York (1888) brings back a Google Map on the bottom left of the Google Book result page. The map has pins scattered amongst the Google Map, showing the readers, “places mentioned in this book.” Cute idea. I wonder if they can plot Neverland on Peter Pan. ;-)
