Google's World

Artist Alejo Malia has created eight beautiful illustrations depicting what the world would look like augmented with Google map. As he puts it "The concept is to represent some of the elements that we see in Google Maps."

A fascinating thing about this is that this is already real - in some sense. This is the world we see when we combine "street view" mapping with mobile phones and augmented reality. One example, while not completely the same, is how the people from Bing are doing it.

You can find out more about Alejo via his blog, Twitter, or Flickr streams
