A very nice example of "why let facts get in the way of a good story": Google mapping team gets 'lost'.EVEN the boffins behind Google's revolutionary Street View can get LOST.With a photo credit(?) for Newsteam.co.uk.
This employee was snapped reading a roadside MAP despite being on a mission to collect images for the world's most popular photographic database of towns and cities.They were forced to pull over on the side of a remote stretch of road in Elsrijkdreef, near Amsterdam, where one of the team had to get out and consult a map as well as appearing to call for help.
My best guess is that there were four streetview cars, with the picture from the first one and they passed a bystander who was peering at the map. I can duplicate the situation with streetview but I can't (at the moment) get the correct deeplink. So a screengrab will have to do.
