Google Map of Adelaide Christmas light displays

Internet

A great example of how you can use Google Maps to represent information in a far more interesting way than simply presenting a dry list of locations. The Adelaide Advertiser has plotted a map of Christmas light displays around the metro area of Adelaide.

ASIDE: It makes far more sense for The Adelaide Advertiser to plot maps of Christmas light displays in Adelaide than if The Adelaide Advertiser plotted a map of Christmas light displays around Northern Siberia. I’m just saying.
