Google has confirmed that it has finished working with the North Pole’s cartographelves on a Santa Claus tracker. In the days leading up to Christmas, Santa will share his location on Google Maps so users can see his travels as he moves across the map. Follow along with him there or on the Santa Tracker dashboard on December 24—so no one misses his visit.
The search giant also confirmed that it’s the 15th year of Santa’s Village, an interactive holiday hub where users can play games to learn coding skills, create original artwork, exercise their geographic chops, and more. Here’s what’s new this year:
With the Elf Maker, you can customize an elf from head to toe to make sure they’re stylin’ for all of the holiday shindigs happening on the North Pole this year. Choose an outfit, accessories, hairstyle, and even facial hair to add some flair to your little friend.
From beaches to blizzards, you can get a better glimpse into how people all over the world are spending the holidays. You’ll see holiday photos from Local Guides and you can test your knowledge of holiday traditions with a festive quiz powered by Google Earth and Street View. Curious about how to say “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy New Year” in other languages? Google’s Translations game can take your snowmenclature to new heights.
