Draw a line and the program will complete the picture to correspond to any place in the world

Land Lines is a new Chrome Experiment where you can draw or drag on your device to create an infinite line on a Google map. Utilizing a data set culled from over 50,000 images, you simply start with a line, and let the planet complete the picture.

Once opening the Google Experiment on either a mobile or desktop, you can use your finger or mouse to draw a line. Land Lines then pulls up Google Earth images of a coastline, highway or terrestrial space that corresponds to the line you drew. If you draw a circle, Land Lines will pull up a Google Earth image that aligns with that exact circle shape.

The experiment was made by Zach Lieberman, Matt Felsen and the Google Chrome Data Arts Team.
