It ranges from the extremely useful, such as where all the World Heritage Sites are, to the most bizarre (古怪的)，such as where America's drunkest cities are.With the mashups added to the basic Google Maps, a multilayered (多层的) map can be created. 本文讲述了人们最喜欢的地图，一种是 Greens maps，另一种是 Maps Mashups。他们的 共同特点是人们可以在网上编辑地图。 1．According to the passage，which of the following is a characteristic of Green Maps?
