Finally Google Maps tells you “what’s here?”

June 20, 2009

Picture 1Finally what many people was waiting, to be on a google map, right click and have a “what’s here?” option.
When a user clicks on “What’s here?” Google will return as specific a result as possible, be that an address, a “natural entity,” or a place name. When combined with the “At this address” feature, “What’s here?” can even be used to return a full list of businesses located at a given address. Hypothetically, that is. The list of conditions for this feature functioning as laid out in the announcement seems to be a bit long and convoluted.
