NSFW Map

I have to apologise in advance for the unacceptably puerile nature of this Google Maps Mashup. This map geo-tags some of the more risqué place names around the world.



The map animates Twittervision style through a hundred of the rudest named places in the world. The map includes 'stop' and 'play' buttons, so if you are intrigued by the name of the location you can pause the map and have a closer look.

If you are interested in the etymology of some of the more imaginatively named locations in the world then this Wikipedia entry (which was the Wikipedia front page article yesterday) explains the history of one once popular road name in the UK.
