capture the map google game - data visualization & visual design - information aesthetics

a cool online strategy game that exploits Google's search engine in an original way. the search results are localized using the Netgeo database (www.caida.org) & "captured" on a world map by virtual pins. by choosing well chosen search queries, players can occupy specific places on the world map. the 2nd player (or the computer) then tries to "hit" those exact places, or to explore alternative cities or countries to occupy, until all pins are used.
