Star Wars Wednesday - Map Search

This week I'm going to share something I just happened to run across while doing some Star Wars searches on google.

While running a search on "Star Wars" (with quotes), I accidentally ran it on the google maps page instead of the regular search page. The results were interesting, with dozens, if not hundreds, of hits all around the country. Among the items:

  • Book stores
  • Toy stores
  • Movie houses
  • Museums
  • 501st meeting place
  • A seminar on using Star Wars to increase sales
  • The Boston Symphony Orchestra
  • and so on....

One of the best results was the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, with an X-Wing.

So, try it out in your area, you might be surprised at what pops up.

Note: This doesn't work on Bing maps.
