Iceland on Google Maps
Iceland in Maps is the first series of Google Maps applications that we have featured from the Republic of Iceland.
The website is an interesting introduction to the geography and island of Iceland and features a number of Google Maps. The series includes maps showing the populated areas of the country, protected areas and national parks, and even a map that allows you to compare the size of Iceland by superimposing the island on top of other countries.
Iceland in Maps also contains a number of maps examining the interesting geology of the country. This includes maps of the country's volcanoes, geothermal areas and glacier access.
