These five Google services are in my bookmarks list. I think each of them is a great source of inspiration and knowledge…
1. Google Art Project // The world’s cultural treasures online
Museums from over 40 countries have contributed more than 40,000 high-resolution images of artworks. Some images are available in “gigapixel” format, allowing you to zoom in to examine incredible detail. You can take virtual tours, create your own gallery and share your favorite masterpieces via social media.
2. Google Historic Moments // Explore history in details
Enjoy online exhibitions detailing the stories behind significant moments in human history. Each exhibition tells a story using documents, photos, videos and in some cases personal accounts of events. Create your own galleries and share favorite finds with friends.
3. Google World Wonders // By using the Street View technology, Google makes world heritage sites available to users across the globe.
From the archaeological areas of Pompeii to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Google’s World Wonders Project aims to bring to life the wonders of the modern and ancient world.
4. Google Picasa // Upload, edit, and share your photos
Don’t want to use Adobe software to edit your images or videos? Try Picasa.
5. Google Creative Sandbox // A showcase of marketing campaigns
See cool stuff. Learn how it was done. Submit your projects.
