Map Monday: Get lost in some mielies


Thanks to the power of the internet, you no longer have to drive for hours on end to participate in one of the oldest childhood activities: walking through a maze.

And thanks to owners of the Edmonton Corn Maze in Canada, you won’t have to sit on long flights to enjoy their real life puzzle. They got a hold of the Google Street View team and had the corn maze mapped – on a sunny day, too, so you get a virtual dose of vitamin E – so all you have to do is operate a mouse. While you could go ahead and cheat by zooming out and looking at the overhead satellite photo of the map, it’ll be far more fun if you just go through as per normal and answer the questions as you progress.
