Christmas Mashups

Just in time for the holiday break here are two seasonal mashups, both with a good sense of fun. One is even a bit utilitarian if you ever happen to need to know how far it is from a given point on the earth to the North Pole. (You can also find 7 other holiday-themed mashups here).

  • How Far Does Santa Have to Travel: You can find out how far it is between the North Pole and your house by using this tool which displays a map and the measured distance.
  • Tacky Christmas Lights: Locate the biggest Christmas light displays. Decorators register their display and this service provides an interactive map and custom driving directions.
