Climb the Eiger on Street View

Google were not the first climbers to scale El Capitan with a panoramic camera strapped to their backs. That award must go to Mammut Project 360. What's more not only have Project 360 climbed El Capitan they have also climbed the Eiger, the Matterhorn, Elbrus and Rübezahl.
Back in June Google released stunning Street View imagery from a climb of El Capitan in Yosemite. The best way to explore this rock-climbing Street View is on this Behind the Scenes special. El Capitan, Yosemite: Behind the Scenes is a great presentation of this new Street View imagery.

Around the World in Eighty Days

This Esri Story Map allows you to follow Phileas Fogg's journey around the world in Jules Verne's classic tale.
Back in 2008 I used the Google Earth plugin to create a quick tour of the journey Phileas Fogg takes in Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days. To my surprise Around the World in Eighty Seconds still works (although it will stop working in December when the Google Earth plug-in is turned ...

The Most Magnificent Maps of the Week

A great collection of maps this week, featuring:
The Elastic Terrain Map
Ukraine's Soviet Streets
Vintage Sea Charts of the world.
The disorientating effect of the Elastic Terrain Map could mean that it won't be adopted too widely. However it is a very interesting way of visualizing elevation data to give a 3d effect for terrain layers. The map is billed as a new way to visualize terrain data - and it is certainly that.
