Compton's Interactive World Atlas (1997) Easter Egg - A True Easter Egg

1. Run World Atlas (see requirements).
2. Click on "Pacific Ocean" in the main world map.
3. Click on Easter Island. This is very difficult, because it is in the middle of the ocean and is so small that it doesn't appear on the map. It is located to the left of South America, slightly below the midpoint of S. Am. (it belongs to Chile) and about 1/4 of the way toward Australia from S. Am. Move your mouse in this area until a "pointing hand" cursor appears, then click.
4. You will see a map titled "Easter Egg Island". It looks like a map but also looks very much like a real easter egg. It is the most fun when found by accident. The cities are named for the software developers (I am in there as me, David Spector) and clicking on a city takes you to a favorite spot for that developer. The map was designed by Martin von Wyss, cartographer extraordinaire in rare moments of spare time.

This is a very cool easter egg. To help you find the island click on the pacific ocean, right click, and zoom in 200% there you will see a spread out cluster of islands, between this cluster and south america there is an island by itself, easter egg island is ALMOST directly below this island, it is a bit to the right.
