maps and travel answers

More of my answers on Quora. This week: maps, cartography, and travel (mostly air travel questions, but featuring "luggage").

Maps and cartography

Google Maps, Street View etc

I seem to have written an awful lot about Google's maps. I've become a Quora "most viewed writer" on the topic. I love Google but I'm not a sycophant and don't hesitate to criticise it where appropriate.


Maps are one of my main loves in life and travel is one of my favourite pastimes. Others include programming, sex and Buddhism, which will get their own separate posts in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more answers/opinions.
