XKCD 1110 as a Google Map

A lot of people stitched together the source images from today's XKCD cartoon, but I really wanted to see it as a custom tile map so that I could zoom around to see all the interesting pieces. The end result can be seen here:

Once I had my map, it then became impossible not to try to find all the cool things. Once I found them, of course I wanted to show friends - so I added a URL hash system so that viewports were shareable. My current personal favorite are these raptors (i think), because before I found them, I was wondering why there was such a lack thereof.

Have Fun!
