Google Maps: SF Rentals and World Tours

CraigStatsSF uses Google Maps to display San Francisco apartments advertised in Craigslist. This project was born out of boredom, according to the creator, grad student Ethan Garner.

Thanks to BoingBoing for the picture of the heat map showing a citywide view of rental costs for one bedroom apartments over the last year.

To tour the world as seen from above, try GoogleSightseeing for unusual satellite images. Here's the supersonic fighter aircraft, parked in a mall parking lot, and the rooftop test track of Fiat's famous Lingotto building.

Wow, that's awesome. It's amazing what kind of things being bored will prompt you into creating.
