Capital gems.ca is a map of abandoned places, mines and caves around Ottawa.

I love finding flickr images with co-ords.



This is one of my favorite things. You can also map photos from entire groups on flickr. Good times.

Supplemental to the last post:

I have recently noticed that sometimes I get different results when I type in site:blahblah.com instead of inurl:blahblah.com.

I'm not totally sure why, but I think it has to do with opening up the parameters to search other sites that simply mention the site in your query and not limited to only that site itself.

If your really want to limit that site command, add the www. to your blahblah.com (site:www.blahblah.com space and your search words no commas), and you will only get info from that particular site and nowhere else.

BTW, these are only a handful of tools and a fraction of what you can do with Google (it's a little scary, actually) searches. type "google search tools" or "boolean search commands," into your search bar and see what comes up.

It'll blow your mind.

Oh, and a lot of these work on Bing, but not all of them do. I'm not sure about the other search engines.
Duckduckgo has been good to me in the past as well, offering a slightly different perspective. Duckduckgo seems more diverse in its general searches than Google or Bing, but that's just my opinion. Oh, yeah, Duckduckgo tries a little harder to maintain your privacy - at least to a greater degree than most of the other big ones. Sometimes we might need that extra discretion when looking up ... certain places.

(I'd probably prefer Duckduckgo to Google if they had all of Google's wonderful search options included. Not all of these tricks work on the other search engines, unfortunately).


This.

I started doing this around a year ago with city and historical society websites and I found a plethora of information.

A good way to find things is to avoid highways. Google maps and waze both have an option for this, I have found lots of things this way.
