Google Maps Adds Labels

Google Map 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On the downside, the labels are a bit out of date.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.
