1. We use Google
Maps as the base for our Israel map. Unfortunately,
the data they make available to ThereArePlaces, does not
contain the same detail as the map of Israel available at
the Google Maps website. In the case of Israel, the
licenses that Google has with its data providers prohibit it
from sharing that data with third-parties, such as
ThereArePlaces. As a consequence, our map of the best
places to visit in Israel has a background satellite image,
but little other cartographic detail.
2. Doubling clicking
any position on
the map will center the map at that location and zoom into
satellite imagery provided by Google for Israel is of
extremely low quality and will not bear significant
magnification. We apologize for this limitation.
4. You may
prefer our standard map of the best places to visit in
Israel, which can be found
We have added a Google search bar to most of our maps.
If you enter the name of something you want to find on the
map (like gelato in Rome or kilts in Edinburgh), clicking
the search button will result in a list of places displayed
above the search bar, as well as symbols for these locations
on the map. Click either the listing or the symbol to
open a window containing contact information for the
listing. Try it, we think you will like it, but the
lack of detail on the Israel map may limit its usefulness.
