Kola Excursion on Google Maps

I've been playing around a bit with Google Maps and decided to mark up some points of interests on the Kola Peninsula for my students to explore before our excursion there in October. You can make out the piers of the naval bases of the Northern Fleet, and environmental damage from the nickel smelters in Nikel and Monchegorsk. Probably the coolest site are the secret early warning radar station and the huge surface-to-air missile base on the way to Lovozero. You can see my marked-up Google Map either here at NorthSpace, or the "official" version at the Arctic Centre. Let me know if you find any mistakes, or new interesting features.
