“GIS technology is kind of like Google Earth, but better!”

-Arnold Schwarzenegger-

Beside Google Earth there are many beautiful, informative and funny interactive maps existing in the internet. With Geolic.net I made a website for my own contributions to this. But I am still considering myself a beginner in that field, which is why I created this small list of interactive world maps. There are many many more out there and if this list is not enough for you, make sure to visit Maps Mania, a blog full of maps, which is updated regularly.

  1. Very nice Interactive maps (IAM). I didn’t know the last one, thanks for sharing. Peter.

    • I am glad you liked it. I could include many more, but it would go beyond the scope of the post.
