Google Naps, a parody of Google Maps helps find best sleep spots outside

Tired after a hectic round of shopping on a lazy day or client meeting outside office and now want to have a quick nap on way? This 'Google Naps' would help you find one such 'sleep' spot.


Created by a group of Dutch developers, this facility gives you choices like open fields, beds and benches in the park outside office or home. The parody map, called 'Google Naps', uses Google maps and its Pegman to plot good 'dozing' spots. So here goes your best 'nap' moment.


To view a napping spot, click the Pegman. A pop-up box would tell why the location is a good place for dozing off. Fields are indicated by a Pegman lying on a green rectangle.


Benches are depicted by a Pegman sat on a seat, while a Pegman under the covers indicates the napping spot that features a bed. Anyone can add a napping spot by clicking on the location and filling in the required details, said media reports.


One such 'nap' spot has even plotted in the Atlantic Ocean aboard a boat! The parody site is created by Amsterdam-based creative agency Venour. “Whenever you are in the Netherlands, have a nap on our couch if you want,” the letter read.


What's more, the creators have written an open letter to Google, saying please do not be mad as this is just a joke, a parody.
