Shocking Revelations On Google Maps? - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Shocking Revelations On Google Maps?

Published October 12, 2013

Icelanders might have a mild case of narcissism but it seems the whole nation has spent the last 24 hours scrutinizing Iceland in Google Maps.

After news broke on Friday that Google Maps had uploaded the images collected by two camera cars this summer, everybody seems to have spotted themselves, friends or relatives somewhere in the Street-View images from across the country.

Not only that, but someone has set um a Tumblr blog, Iceland Street Adventures, showing some of the funny or awkward (or both) images captured by the Google camera cars.

Amongst them are a glimpse of Darth Vader, a cat sunbathing on a sidewalk (nothing new to us at Grapevine), and evidence of mad anarchy in Reykjavík!

Check it out here.
