Google Maps Gallery is a Digital Atlas with Information about the World

The Google yesterday launched Google Maps Gallery. The premise is simple: tointegrate the company maps with historical and geographical information of several globe locations presentem other maps and make easy access to that information.

The project is an expansion of Google Maps Engine, launched last year and that allowed a simple publishing custom maps in Maps by various organizations. Now, these maps are displayed in an organized manner and easily accessible.

Among the organizations that have contributed to the Gallery are universities, government agencies and institutes research, such as National Geographic, NASA (yes, there are maps off the planet!), The Library National of Scotland, the World Bank and many others.

Maps can be found in addition to the specific page for mechanisms search and Google Earth. In the Gallery, are categorized as Culture and Society, History (the coolest in my opinion: scanned physical maps are overlaid on Google maps to compare how the place was before and how was today), Crisis, Infrastructure and other.

Most of the contents shows USA, followed by some European countries. But organizations anywhere in the world can sign up to your custom maps and expand the bank information just fill out the Google form and wait for approval.
