Google Maps "vandalism" mocks Google Maps' editing policy


I guess I’m clueless about how Google Maps works. I didn’t realize users could edit it. I planning a hike locally that took us through a neighborhood, and the streets in the map looked exactly like somebody had scribbled them in this one neighborhood. Absolutely no connection to reality, and not even any kind of normal street layout. Just scribbles. I figured it was a Google employee, but I guess it was a user.

Neither of those “features” are visible (to me) when I click the links. Is it a regional thing (i.e. do you need to sign in to rather than .com) or has Google cleaned them up?

edit: It’s .pt, not .in (reading comprehension fail!) and in any case the links already go there. So… huh?
