You-are-here Maps

These are all Google Map pictures of the places where I live and work (note to Big Brother: you can direct your ICBMs, SCUDs and "Smart Bombs" there, I suppose, if you don't like my vision of a just and sustainable solar powered environment!)

In our textbook (Environmental Psychology, Paul Bell ed. 2005), Chapter 3, from pages 68 - 95, the authors discuss Cognitive Maps and Way-Finding. Google Maps produces a good type of "Bird's Eye View" Spatial Maps, otherwise known as "Survey Maps".
