LDS Temples: "Temples will dot the earth"

I'm excited to announce my newest endeavor to document the history of the church. As you all know I want to locate all the GPS coordinates of Church history sites throughout the world. Using google maps I have been able to start documenting the location, address, and gps coordinates of the temples of the world. My project is called LDS Temples: "Temples will dot the earth". I have placed the location of most of the temples throughout the United States and I hope to complete all the temples in the near future. Feel free to comment and add pictures of your favorite temple. I will also be adding Church history locations on the map. All these maps are interactive so you can zoom it to the particular street that the temple is on. The map also has the option of satellite views which makes it pretty cool.

For a even better birds eye view of the temples download a free version of Google Earth. Click here for that. Play around with it for a while to get acquainted with the tools and then go to my map click share at the bottom and right click on Google Earth. Save the file. Then pull up Google Earth and go to open and bring up the saved file. Pretty cool stuff.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I heard that Brigham Young said that in the last days, there will be so many temples that you can stand on the steeple of one and see the next one in the horizon.

That's already kinda true in Utah.
