Google Sightseeing - See the World on Your Desktop

Browsing Google Maps you can see lots of interesting landmarks and fun occurrences captured by the Streetview cameras. Finding all of those fun and interesting views can sometimes be tricky. That's when the Google Sightseeing blog becomes handy.

Google Sightseeing is a blog that archives the interesting and fun places that you can see in Google Maps and Google Maps Streetview. You can search the blog according to region, country, and type of view (Streetview, aerial view, etc).

Applications for Education
Because of some of the commentary, I would hesitate to send students to browse Google Sightseeing on their own. That said, if you're looking for some interesting landmark views to share with your class to support a history or geography lesson Google Sightseeing is a nice resource.
