Google Business Scavenger Hunt

Let’s go shopping! Actually let’s explore Google Business imagery. You can find this imagery by looking for orange dots while dragging the Peg Man icon across Google Maps. Some really dense collections of them can be found in major capitals like Tokyo, London, and New York. Other mid-sized cities have concentrations that have yet to be explored though. Plan your strategy accordingly.

This Scavenger Hunt will last two weeks. It will end at 0659 UTC on Wednesday, August 28.

Good luck and happy hunting!
