Explore a Map of 900+ UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO Places recently released a new site design that features a Google Map of more than 900 World Heritage Sites. You can zoom and click on the map to find and explore sites all around the world. Clicking on a placemark will take you to a page of information with pictures about that World Heritage Site. From there you can click through to pages of information about other UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the same region.

Applications for Education
The UNESCO Places map could be a good resource for geography and history teachers. Students could use the map as the starting point in a research project about significant historical sites in various regions of the world.
