Google Knows Your Property Lines

GM has looked into some quirks in Google Maps’ take on Georgetown. They can’t decide whether its Dumbarton St. or Dumbarton Ave. They see streets that don’t exist. And they can’t place things right.

Well now they’ve recently added property lines to Google Maps. Here’s what our town looks like in Google Maps these days:

While the largest plots are the well known estates like Everymay, Dumbarton Oaks, and Tudor Place. But there are at least six other significant properties like the Bowie-Sevier House on Q St.

Google also now identifies all the buildings on Georgetown University’s campus:
