That would be a cool idea - although I'm not sure how they'd do it.

Have you seen Google Moon by the way? :)

I like Google earth, Mspanners. I 'find' all my pen pals houses on it. it's great fun, the ones who haven't got GE I print a copy & send it to them.
What a good idea, a Google Discworld. Some computer wizard might invent one, you never know. :D

Tony, Hi, I do think your siggy is brilliant. :D
Best wishes,
Tiff

Thanks for the Google Moon link..... :)

Google Discworld coud be done I think as there are enough maps around to establish the Geography of the Disc... a bright 3D modeler could do it! Shame I have Nil Computing skills............. :lol:

At one time the Google Moon site was a spoof. If you zoomed in you eventually got to see a whole bunch of cheese. I'm kind of disappointed that they've made it a proper map. :lol:
