Google Maps Adds Labels

Google Map

I’m walking out the door so I’m just going to snip this whole thing from blogdowntown since Eric is totally on top of it:

“I noticed this morning that Google Maps recently started identifying landmarks, including a good number of buildings Downtown. If you take a look at this map you’ll see labels for the Biltmore, MOCA, Macy’s Plaza, and more. This change couples nicely with their recent addition of arrows indicating flow on one-way streets.

On the downside, the labels are a bit out of date. The most glaring example is the current listing of Caltrans as being located in their old building, currently being prepped for demolition.”

  1. If you use the new google earth product (use to be keyhole before bought by google) it not only has the building footprint with a lable but full 3D models of all the buildings in downtown LA and several other cities. Pretty incredible.
