1,194 - Using a Map Program

March 28th, 2016

Episode 378 of 489 episodes

If you are feeling a little lost, perhaps you need a good map program. Learn how to use one in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:24 Explanations: 3:46 Fast dialog: 17:07 Caroline: I just got an email from Sandra with her new address. I wish I knew what kind of neighborhood our daughter is living in. Bryce: Let’s find out. I’ll type in her address on this map program. Caroline: That will just tell us where she’s living within the city, not what kind of neighborhood it is. Bryce: Just wait. I can show you the street view of her apartment and you can see what her building looks like. Caroline: Wow, that’s amazing, but doesn’t the building look a little run-down? Bryce: That’s what you get with high-resolution images. You see every detail. You can navigate around and see a panoramic view of her street. Caroline: Oh, that doesn’t look very clean or safe. Bryce: Let me show you an aerial view. The satellite view will give you a better idea of the entire area. Caroline: Is that an airport nearby and are those factories? What will this other view show us? Bryce: That provides real-time traffic information and allows for route planning. It looks like she lives on a highly congested street. Hey, where are you going? Caroline: I’m going to visit our daughter. I want to see for myself what kind of hovel she’s living in! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
