Google Maps Alphabet


I saw this article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/picture-galleries/5757548/The-Google-Maps-alphabet-UK-an-A-to-Z-of-the-British-Isles.html after it was pointed out on the PTRC forum and it got me thinking: What other things could we create like this?

The obvious one seems to me to be asking the children to do a similar thing finding digits 0-9, but I’m sure there are other things too. Ideas on a postcard (or a comment) please 🙂
Edited to add: Punctuation marks is another one I just thought of, although not massively exciting.

    Shapes!Either 'proper' shapes (like square, circle, rhombus, dodecagon etc.) or more imaginative shapes, such as you might find when looking at clouds or stars (that's a tractor! That's a cornflake! That's a postbox with legs and three antennae!)

    I like it! I've just thought mathematical symbols would be another good one.

    Two more ideas: – the lower case alphabet- create a google maps zoo collecting as many different animals as you can (like the chalk horses on the sides of hills)

    http://www.geogreeting.com go and make your own messages using buildings. Punctuation works.
