Destaco aqui o interessante Maps. Maps o questionamento dos pontos de referncia no google maps. Ela explora as imprecises e brinca com a relao entre o espao eletrnico e o espao urbano, concretizando, por assim dizer, os pontos de interesse.

“The web interface of Google Maps uses small graphical icons to show location related search results on a map in an alphabetical order. On each new search ten red markers (A – J) known from the analogue world find their new position automatically within milliseconds. Interestingly each marker and even the speech bubbles with further information do cast a shadow on the map and satellite image. While zooming in the map the pixel size of the markers on the screen always stay at the same size. But if their size is seen in relation to their environment they shrink while the user does zoom in the map.”
