Something odd about the map here

Post by zex on Mon Jan 19, 2009 8:12 am

All of you know that here there's a map, useful to find out where do other members live. Well, out of curiosity I decided to zoom all the way my point, and found out that, while the city it marks it correct, if you zoom it (by the way, it's surprising that the map has so much detail up to all the streets) it places my house some 15-20 kms away from the real ubication. Not a big deal (and it means that you won't be able to find the real address of where I live Wink) but it stuck me as odd, after all, why there? And it's not like it put me in the center of the city, it put me in a way more "empty" and far from the center place than where I live.

So, do you guys have all this wrong address?

It just maps the IP Address of your Internet provider.

What Don said. It can only track as far as the ISP. Then the rest is up to imagination. ^_^
