Maxim on Google Earth

Saturday, October 07, 2006

In celebration of its 100th issue, Maxim went into the desert and laid out a huge copy (110 foot tall) of one of its more popular covers (picture of Housewife Eva Longoria on the cover). They then took aerial photos of the project and created image overlays so you can view it in Google Earth [Google Earth File. You must have GE installed.] . I guess they couldn't wait 2 or 3 years for Google to buy a satellite or aerial photo and include it in their database. According to Defamer, it took them 15 hours to lay it out with 9 people, 25 hours to print out, and 125 stakes to hold it on the ground.
