Google used a color-mapping algorithm to correctly color out maps that represent the different terrains and geographical features.
The result is a “more comprehensive, vibrant map of an area at global scale.” Lakes rivers and oceans are blue, beaches and deserts are tan, and lush areas are green.
According to Google, you’ll notice an improvement whether you’re looking at large city or a small rural town.
“Soon”, we’ll be able to see more accurate maps of streets, sidewalks, and pedestrian islands to a more accurate scale. Google plans to begin rolling out more detailed street maps of London, New York, and San Francisco “in the coming weeks” with intention to expand to more cities over time.
That post exemplifies the root of the problem - a historical legacy of centuries of propaganda based on the premise of European racial supremacy. It portrays the white colonial master that is the savior to the ever thankful poor black slave. Thank God, I’m an emancipated African - and I don’t worship at the feet of white gods - the Queen or the Governor, who are simply relics of outmoded colonialism built on the tenets of racist institutions of white supremacy that colonized and enslaved Africans for centuries.
As Bob Marley said, “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,” because sometimes, “shit is just shit!”
