======= ##Where in the World Is Waldo? This started as me trying to learn the Google Maps Javascript API and Google Places API. Play ANYWHERE in the world by popping in a latitude and longitude up top. #####Live Link: http://simkhosla.github.io/WheresWaldo%20(Made%20with%20GOOGLE%20MAPS%20API)/googlemaps.html WheresWaldo

###How It Works: The Google Places API allows you to search for places nearby the center of the map. Using that, I place all the extras on all the cafe's, stores, atms, bus stations and train stations. Waldo, Wenda, Odlaw, Wizard Whitebeard and Woof are placed on five schools in the area.

###Coming soon: Eventually, I want to tap into the Google Maps Geocoding service and see if I can have the applet search by any location, not just limited to Lat and Long.
