Exploring Art Through Geography

Geo Coded Art is a collection of landscape, seascape, and cityscape paintings. The collection can be browsed by artist, by painting title, or by location. No matter how you browse, once you've found a painting, click on it to view it on a Google Map or Bing Map. Once you're on the map you can browse for other paintings created in the same region.

Applications for Education
Geo Coded Art could be a great resource for teachers who would like to combine a geography and or history lesson with an art lesson.
