Google Maps Fail....

I was looking for an intersection in Oak Bay and was zoomed in to Google Maps when I noticed that the map still showed "Sealand of the Pacific" as a landmark:



For those not in the know, Sealand closed in the early 1990s -- long before Google Maps came into existence. Anyone know how to report an error to Google Maps?

When you find out let me know, I've got a hole to report.

Good news! There's a Fuddruckers back on Blanshard! I'm going there after I go to the Crystal Garden!

Hey, I found what seem to be instructions for error reporting... I'm going to give it a whirl.

Not sure how to tell Google about the mistake...but thought I should point out the mistake at the top of your webpage.

"like so much detrius" should be "like so much detritus", with a "T".

Well, heck. I recently replaced the banner and you're the first to notice that typo. I will have to dig out the Fireworks file and fix it when I am home. Thanks for the keen eye.
