I don’t know how many of you have already done this…but all of should go to www.wikimapia.com and check it out. It’s something like Google-Earth…basically you can zoom into any part of the world real close. You can identify your house, college…it’s pretty cool! I got so excited the first time I saw it…I was calling everyone up and telling them to check my house out; they checked out their own houses instead, but never mind that!
Wikimapia is easier to use than googlearth because to use googlearth you have to download a software and everything, but wikimapia is a plain n simple site that technically challenged people too can easily use.
And the best part about wikimapia is that you can but a little box around your house or neighbourhood or favourite cafe and write its name and some info about it for all the world to see. It’s a real pity that some people have misutilised this function and just write stupid stuff like “This is my house” or “Sheesha sux!” But please use wikimapia intelligently because the site deserves it.
Check out St. Xavier’s College: you can easily make it out and it’s very intricately labelled. Not only is the college labeled but almost every department, the Vice-Principle’s office, Arun Da’s canteen…you can see it all!
The US side has a much clearer resolution. Check out the White House….you can literally see people swimming in the pool!!
