Google Map Trip

Posted by

One web assignment I did was called Google Map Trip (2 stars).  The first thing that came to my mind was the trip I am on know.  I was  volunteered to go to a basketball tournament down at Duke the same weekend Sand, the perfect storm as meteorologist have been calling it, is suppose to hit while we are at Duke and traveling back to Mary Washington.  To create the image representing this assignment, I pulled up google maps and got directions from Mary Washington to Duke. I then pulled up and found information on what was going on with the storm Sandy.  I then made the window some what small and in front of the google maps window and made sure the directions were still visible.  I then took a screen shot of the internet windows and uploaded it onto flickr and tagged the picture with On/In the WebAssignments201 and WebAssignments.
