Google Maps API And UFOs

UFO Google Maps
Google Maps technology used to track UFO sightings

      Using the Google Maps API (or application program interface), http://www.ufomaps.com/ launches an interactive map of UFO sightings.

     The interactive map is dotted with "flying saucer" icons indicating where UFOs have been sighted. Clicking on the icon pulls up a short summary of the sighting, with an additional link to a more detailed report. Thte data is from the National UFO Reporting Center.

     The Google initiative is not the only site to use maps to chart UFO activity. http://www.larryhatch.net/ is a detailed effort to graph UFO activity ffrom the past 50 years or ealier, and as a sizable set of graphs, charts, histograms and other data. http://www.ufodisclosure.com tracks alleged UFO flight corridors and patterns near Bisbee, Arizona. While not offering maps, another serious effort of research is at http://www.ufoinfo.com/.

     Enjoy the skies!
