EDIT: People have correctly guessed that the model is of the Century Studios building in Culver City, California, where the American TV series of Hell's Kitchen is filmed!

A Look Back

Just a look back on the awesome Mapper Modeler Summit held by Google last year in Zurich, Switzerland. I was able to attend and had a blast learning more about Google Map Maker and sharing knowledge about geo-modeling.

Also it's pleasing to see many of the faces in this video, who now continue to be online "pen pals" of mine.

I won't be able to attend the upcoming meeting in Barcelona, but good luck and safe travels to those who do. You'll have fun memories of it, no doubt, as I do of Zurich!
