When you are highly interested in geography, it’s time to discover the terrains of their countries. That’s what you called “wikimapia” (The website: http://wikimapia.org). The purpose of that website is to explore the outlook of those terrains around the world. All information are included to point out the countries, locations, and cities… even on buildings, houses and streets! Those images shot by NASA at 2,000 feet up to 20,000+ feet above the ground.

Unlike other old-fashioned geographical maps can be found in books, pamphlets or guides, wikimapia will view a real-life terrain, even under the sea. You’re going to adjust the zoom from the farthest until the nearest using the scroll of your mouse or control the pane. You can navigate those locations around the world by dragging. You can trace possible routes on-line. Also, you can find your home, your office building, your restaurant… everything that you can see! You will also label a place if you found a single foundation. Make sure that information is correct.

You will amaze that website. It is an effective tool in finding a place or path. It will be your traveling guide on the outlook of your expected destination to navigate. Also, you may ask to someone if there’s a missing destination or a place based from wikimapia to travel for additional info.
