Google Maps in Second Life

A company called Daden Ltd who describe themselves as a 'Virtual Worlds consultancy' have imported Google Maps into Second Life. I guess this means that you can now explore the real world in Second Life's virtual world.

The Google Maps system is on permanent display on Daden Prime in SL. However, if you don't have Second Life, thanks to the wonderful Digital Urban you can get an idea of what Daden Ltd have achieved through this amazing video.

Coincidently you can also view David Rumsey's historical map collection in Second Life by visiting the David Rumsey Maps Island (this is a link that will open Second Life). Personally I prefer to view the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection on Google Maps.
