Random Sampling the Past ds106 Flow

  1. Google map story

    --Originally published at My story Blog
    Today's ds106's assigment is Use google map to tell story.
    Today I would like to introduce how to go to my old school from current school.


    Goole map shows from current school to old school distance is 12950Km (8000mile)
    I choose to go to my old school by walk.
    At that time Goole map showed very interesting direction!

    I believe Google map tell you new way to go to your end of your journey.
