    Google maps continues to add details

    Kind of neat, google maps now has the lots at JTS marked out. That is very handy if you're hosting a tailgate and want to send out an invite with a map.

    The south endzone has always been that way. I think they haven't changed the imaging....just more of they're adding in labels. Obviously they're still working out bugs. Nonetheless, I thought it was cool.

    I moved it, but they say it will take a little time for it to show. I also reported that Elwood dr no longer exists.

    Also noticed that most of Ames has the Street View now. I did a virtual stroll around some of my old stomping grounds. Was interesting.

    It'd be cool if they'd tell you when the satellite imagery was taken though.

    Once you zoom into a certain level, the date does show up in the lower left corner. At least in some areas I have seen this. So this is something that they are probably adding or including as they update images.

    It is also dependent on your cursur location. So if you are in an area that happens to have a couple images where they meet, you will get the date of the image where you cursur is at.

    Edit: The dates are in Google Earth and not Google maps I guess. I was thinking of the wrong one. Although from what I have observed, the images seem to be the same.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I think their estimate of the size of campus is a little generous. I didn't know the university had acquired all of campustown...

    University BLVD

    Didn't really like the name change, but I do like the fact that it is now the same all the way to Stang where before it changed to Pammel drive half way between there and Lincoln way.
