Welcome to MapOfStrange.com - strange things in google maps
The MapOfStrange website is a way of recording strange, wacky, weird and wonderful anomalies, sights and oddities from Google Maps and Google Earth. Unfortunately we've had to disable new submissions for the time being. We've got a massive backlog and we really need to clear these before we start allowing new things onto the site. We've got big plans for the mapofstrange, so please come back soon and see the new, all-improved version (with a whole load of new content and loads more strange things in Google Maps and Google Earth).
The Google Maps streetview has recently been added into the Google Maps API. This is great - it allows you to view street-level shots in various cities around the US. We've put together a lightweight interface to this on the site. It's very much a 'beta version' at the moment, but it does have some decent functionality, and this will be improving all the time over the next few months.
The site is now up-to-date, and as such new submissions have been reinstated. A backlog of nearly 5,000 records had built up and it was just too much to cope with, but we've whittled these down to the best. And in the meantime, we've reinstated the ratings system - click on the tick to show that you like it, and the cross to show that you don't like it. You can also order the listings by the top rated entries.
We've got a huge backlog of new records in the database, so unfortunately, we've had to disable submissions (temporarilly). What this means is that nobody will be able to add anything for the foreseeable future.
