Google's future of the map

A really nice Atlantic article on how Google is putting massive effort into using Google Maps to organize all the information in the real world. They can extract images of street signs from the photos taken by their street view cars, and the GPS track of the cars is more accurate than most of the basic data from US agencies.

It's a massive leap in the concept of the information contained in a map.
