Lemmings Statues added to Google Maps finally!
« on: December 16, 2016, 01:39:10 AM »
Back when I visited the Lemmings Statues in early November, it really infuriated me that there was no indication of where it was on Google Maps yet down the road in Dundee City Centre, there was a Desperate Dan statue marked on Google Maps (as a tourist attraction)

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Desperate+Dan+Statue/@56.4605396,-2.9710507,17z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x0:0xd7dd147cd75ad7c3!2sLemmings+statues!8m2!3d56.4564729!4d-2.9808676!3m4!1s0x0:0x53db2089cffb3bf3!8m2!3d56.4606751!4d-2.9701006?hl=en-GB

Anyway, I suggested to google that the Lemmings Statues be added as a Historical Landmark pin and it has finally been approved

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lemmings+statues/@56.4564729,-2.9830563,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xd7dd147cd75ad7c3!8m2!3d56.4564729!4d-2.9808676?hl=en-GB

So now thanks to my suggestion, you can see the statues at anytime on Google Maps by searching for them and I've helped get them on the map as a historical landmark :thumbsup:

That's fantastic! :thumbsup: It's a shame that the sun isn't reflecting on all these lemmings but still a pleasure to look at for all lemmings fans!

My wife and I are enjoying a holiday in Scotland. On our way from Edinburgh to Inverness we stopped off in Dundee today to visit the Lemmings statues and the former DMA office!











It's a lovely tribute. The statues are beautifully done.

How did I miss this when I visited Dundee??? I didn't even see this plaque on my visit, thanks for posting these pictures :)

I wonder if the list of members on the Lemmings forums I put in the highest most Lemming statue is still there? I put it in their foot where a small gap between the statue and the brickwork exists.

I would love to revisit these statues at some stage in my life :)

EDIT: my visit to the statues in November 2016 is covered in this topic
