Model Railroading and Street Map View
This is truly just a personal blog post to share something fun.
These links about the Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg - model building - model railway Hamburg which claims to be, and very well may be the largest model railroad in the world, combine some of my favorite pastimes ....railroads , model railroads, and mapping.
A post from the 4th Division of the National Model Railroad Association
has links to a video showing some "street map" data being collected on the model (direct link below) and an interactive (it's Google, sorry Esri) map. Something to check out when you need a chuckle and a "wow" moment.
Video about promoting collecting the data #MiniView: Das Miniatur Wunderland auf Google Maps - YouTube
And the interactive map About – Google Maps
By the way, there are many great YouTube videos showing this model train layout. Impressive by anyone's standards (in my opinion).
