California in 1650

About: Flash Mashup of California As Island With Google Earth


Click to the mashup of Google Earth with the map of California as an island drawn by Joan Vinckeboons about 1650.   Move the red slider at the bottom to mix the old map with the Google Earth version of California today.  You can also click on zoom buttons to go to detailed maps of various sections.

Thanks to group jason Russell for programming this in flash.

You can learn more about California as an island at Wikipedia or by reading The Island of California: A History of the Myth by Dora Beale Polk.

It is interesting.  Years ago, when I had a world map on my wall, I used to stare at it for hours figuring out how the various continents fit nicely together like a puzzle. I think I read later that geologists say that they were all connected together at one time. Imagine if the global warming enthusiasts had been around when they separated!
Well the digital zoom project is all about adding another dimension to the sliders on the map. Sliding back to pangaea is way the fuck back.  You might be able to do it by cutting out the continents and using the tween transfromations in the flash8.
