Twenty years ago today, Harry Potter began his journey from a closet on Privet Drive to the castle at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft. And Wizardry. And Alohomora!. He unlocked the imaginations of Muggles everywhere.

Conjured up by author J.K. Rowling. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” (called “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in the U.S.). Has sold more than 450 million copies in 79 languages since its initial publication on June 26, 1997. The worldwide pop-culture phenomenon grew to include six more Harry Potter books, a few literary spinoffs. A movie franchise. And a hit two-part play.

To celebrate this anniversary. Google Earth’s storytelling platform, Voyager. Takes you on a global tour (no portkey needed) of real-world places inspired from and by the Harry Potter universe. As fans might expect, the journey begins at Platform 9 ¾ at London’s King’s Cross. Other stops include the London market that stands in for Diagon Alley in the films, the Edinburgh cafe where J.K. Rowling wrote. And the Orlando amusement park where Muggles can buy a wand, ride a Hippogriff and drink some butterbeer. Grab your broomstick and take flight with Google Earth’s Voyager.

Carmen Sandiego is back on Google Earth, gumshoe

Carmen Sandiego is back on Google Earth, gumshoe

Carmen Sandiego

This March, we put out the call for super sleuths to help us track down Carmen Sandiego in Google Earth. And we were blown away by the enthusiasm and speed with which people found the reformed VILE operative—who is now an ACME agent—by traveling from city to city around the globe.

You not only solved the caper, but also shared stories and memories of playing the original games, watching the shows (both old and new), reading the books, and sharing the experience with friends, family and kids.

Today, we’ve teamed up with Carmen Sandiego and learning company: 

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 

once again this time to help her recover: 

Tutankhamun’s Mask.

Le Chevre, a master climber and classmate of Carmen Sandiego at VILE Academy, has stolen the priceless artifact. We’re counting on gumshoes everywhere to help Carmen find him and recover the loot.

To get your assignment, look for the special edition Pegman icon in Google Earth for ChromeAndroid  and  iOS. Good luck, detectives!

Can you go back 10 years on Google Earth?

You can use Google Earth’s historical imagery tool to essentially go back in time. Google Earth’s tool lets you view what certain points on the globe looked like many years in the past. In order to access and use it, you have to use the desktop application, rather than the Google Earth mobile app.

What is the age of Carmen Sandiego?

The Earth series gave the franchise a timeline, with the mid-1990s (the time the show was produced) being the present. According to this timeline, Carmen joined ACME in 1985, placing her birth in approximately 1968. Her birthday is on March 1 (“The Scavenger Hunt”).
