Google Maps

I found out today that Google only did about half my town on their maps, they put all businesses located at the end of one deadend street in the middle of no where, and even have the street I live on wrong.

I feel sorry for people using a google maps based GPS system in smaller towns like mine.

  2. Yeah one of the upsides of living in a city. But I come from a small town in nowheresville and I like it too.

  3. I remember years ago when they first started rolling it out. The imagery extended just to the outskirts of my town and then stopped short of my street. All better now though, so just give it time.

  5. My school had a "natural area" for our ecology department. Out in the middle of it google placed an Arby's... It has some hilarious reviews. I'll make a post about that.
