View Larger Map


You'll find an interactive map of Nova Scotia, Canada above, though you can't access the little yellow pegman from that map. Use the link below it "View Larger Map", and the map will appear on your monitor; drag the little Yellow Man onto the map, step into Belfast and the adjacent area in Nova Scotia, and start exploring. Find an interesting subject/area. Change it all you want. Or paint it straight up as you see it. Instructions are in the sidebar to the right. Any questions, ask 'em in the comments or email me directly.

This month we are including Halifax and surrounding areas. Since this is the only area mapped currently for Street View use in Nova Scotia, we thought we'd give the opportunity to explore all available.

Thanks to Google, as they have given their permission for artists to use Street View as a reference for paintings that can then be sold without fear of copyright infringement.

Thank you to the Google Maps Team, the Google Street View Team, and all those involved. And thank you, artists, for participating.

Remember, participation is open to all levels of artistic ability.

NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!

Thanks to everyone for making October and Belfast our most active month for participation yet! What a wonderful turnout!

I hope you all find some inspiring views in Halifax and surrounding areas this month. It is a beautiful place.

Thanks Bill - I'm really looking forward to taking part again. You've inspired me to do a whole Street View Artists Journal!
I'm sure this challenge will just grow and grow.

Thanks, Bill! Ireland was wonderful for me! I was inspired to do quite a few drawings.
I'm looking forward to Nova Scotia.
And, Gillian, I think your idea is wonderful!

I just found this site through "google maps mania", I am a Nova Scotia educated Cartographer. Many thanks for a link, not only in the 'blogosphere', but between mapping, art and community. What a great idea - well done.
