This morning I decided to look up where my wife and I need to vote tomorrow. We recently moved and had to call the county clerk to determine the correct polling place. Punching the address into Google maps, I noticed something odd. The area pointed to can't be place to vote. Instead, it's a small pasture where horses graze. I know because it's right down the road from my house. Here's the image with the arrow:
Trying this in Microsoft's Live Local map server, I got the following image. Notice how the pushpin is on the other side of Roy Cole Rd. This is correct. The area pointed to by the pushpin above is a firehall and the place where we will be voting. I'm not saying that Microsoft's maps are always more
I'm quite certain others can find many examples where Google Maps are more accurate but after this little test I just might be more likely to use Live Maps in the future.
