Funerals ... As seen by Google Maps


This never crossed my mind until I ran across it on the net. I guess "Big Brother" is always watching ... from the beginning to the end."

With the continually increasing quality of images on Google Maps/Earth, it’s hardly surprising that the cameras are capturing ever more private moments of people’s lives. Perhaps then it was only a matter of time before the very end of someone’s life was published on the Internet for the whole world to see.

Here’s two examples of funerals taking place, one in the Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Chicago, and the other at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Washington DC Silver Spring, Maryland. In both shots you can see a crowd of mourners surrounding the grave and also the funeral procession parked nearby. Who'd have thunk it???? (Source)

Interesting...I never thought of it for this use. I recently looked when my husband wanted to show me the coolest thing. It was a google map of our house! Scary!!
