Even Google Maps Need Cartographers

The recent post by Ed Parsons, chief technical officer for the UK's Ordinance Survey, spotted an obvious error regarding Google Maps coverage over Europe. I wonder if this is a NavTeq or TeleAtlas mistake since it is noted in the U.S. coverage that they are the sources?

Spot the mistake? Spot the deliberate mistake ?

I am a huge fan of google maps a well designed application and great user expereice, however can you spot the problem on this map of Europe.. Look closely and you will see a error in the text placement routine which means that..

Woops.. Belgium north of the Netherlands

Belgium has swapped places with the Netherlands !
