Google Maps Adds Wikipedia Articles and Photos

The clever folk over at Google have added a couple of neat new features to their Maps – Wikipedia articles and geotagged photos, giving users an even fuller experience of the location they’re searching for. “Photos” and “Wikipedia” buttons can now be ticked in the newly added “More” tab on Google Maps to show an overlay of thumbnails showing all the geotagged photos and Wiki articles about points of interest in the area of search.  The geotagged photos are a nice alternative to the blurry vision of Street View, though the map is easily overcrowded once both photos and Wikipedia articles are added to the mix. Still a great, and useful, addition.
