Chris Tweedie Looks at Google Maps Accuracy

Link – Its google – it must be right

After comparing some common overlays from both Mapserver and Arcims (using the php code i posted earlier), it was obvious something was up, either my data being projected was wrong or googles base data was out

Chris makes the same assertion that I did yesterday and it backs up why metadata is just so important. If the Google Maps service is going to be taken seriously they will have to start addressing this issue.

Of course if they just leave it in Beta for the next couple years, what does it matter?
