For its 10th birthday, the Google Maps team is going on a cross-country road trip
Google may have found itself in hot water recently over spam and offensive content finding its way into Google Maps, but the team behind the mapping service isn’t letting that stop them from celebrating its 10th birthday.
Starting yesterday at Google I/O and culminating in a final “celebration of coding” at Disney World on June 26th, the Maps team will be making its way across the country in a customized 1959 GM tour bus, stopping in 10 places along the way to hold developer meetups, show off apps built using the Maps API, and even make an appearance on Sesame Street. Stops will be in Utah, Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, Virginia, Georgia and Florida.
If you’d like to check out the bus on one of its stops (anyone is welcome to), there’s a website up where you can find all the information you’ll need.
