Google Maps Santa Tracker


    While everyone is gearing up for Christmas, Google too is gearing up to spread the cheer with the world this Christmas. On Christmas Eve, Google will be showcasing a preview of Santa's dashboard - the technology that powers his sleigh during his around-the-world journey. Google has received this special preview from one of Santa’s many developer elves, who are hard at work in the North Pole helping Santa prepare for his big day.

    Santa’s dashboard - featuring the latest and the greatest in Google Maps technology and sleigh engineering - will allow all of us to follow his progress around the world, and also learn a little about some of his stops along the way.

    While Santa gets ready for his journey, we are all invited to visit and explore Santa's village. You are bound to find some fun activities and meet some interesting elves. Hope you all enjoy your visit to Santa's Village and let me know what did you enjoy the most - The Present Drop activity or the Present Jetpack activity or the elves at the Briefing section or the other elves at so many other places in the village.

    Wishing all the readers, merry Christmas and a very happy new year to come...



UPDATE:
    Santa is already on his way across the globe delivering gifts and presents to all the kids waiting eagerly for the big white beard Santa Claus. The Google Santa tracker allows you to view his journey around the world. Here are a few images from Santa's Dashboard.
