A Geo-Type Greeting: Happy Valentine's Day!

More or less: I created a geo-greeting at geoGreeting! - as first seen at Geology.com. The site creates letters as you type a message. The letters are mostly enlargements of buildings from Google Maps - only three letters or symbols were from geologic or geographic features. The "D" is a lake, the *heart* symbol is an island, and the "@" is a small park.

Instead of creating an embedding code for a website, one gets a link, which one can then send in an email or as a MySpace e-card.

lettersIf you could see all the letters at once, they would look something like this.

Happy Valentine's Day :)

Hey, that's nice!

It's a pity that geological objects rarely come in letter shapes. ;-)

Hey, glad you guys like it! One could probably add geological letter shapes to the list - maybe - if one can find any. But I'm not sure.
