According to Google, “In September 2012 our team discovered a paper map that has been verified as Captain Kidd’s treasure map. However, we haven’t deciphered all the clues yet and its up to you to access his map and uncover the secrets. If we all work together, we can solve the mystery and find the long lost treasure.”
As part of this discovery, Google has come out with Treasure Maps. Enjoy the pirate -style design, complete with 2-D hand-drawn landmarks and hidden treasure chests.
Some locations, like Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay and San Jose State University, have mini maps and a letter X marking the spot. There are other icons scattered around with map coordinates, including Bermuda, New York, and Boston.
Happy April Fools’ Day!
