Google Maps adds pictures!

Now, whenever you search for a location on Google Maps, you'll get links to Paranoramio photos, YouTube videos, user-created maps, and even see popular queries specific to that location. The new options appear when you click the "Explore this area" link in the left-hand side panel. Google has also introduced rooftop geo-coding for 50 million homes and businesses in the U.S., which should significantly improve mapping accuracy.

Here is a sample of what appears if you look at 300 South Main Street in Greenville, which happens to be the address of the Peace Center. (You get a user submitted photo of the Peace Center.)

Now, can someone map and geocode the mice?
