Search Engine Maps Battle: Millennium Park, Chicago, IL
"That's where they got that Picasso."
-Jake Blues - The Blues Brothers
Jake Blues' proved to be more than your average convict musician with his comment about the artwork in Richard J. Daley Plaza. He was referring to this:
That Picasso was among the most photographed pieces of public art in Chicago over the past few decades. But I think this one may have moved ahead of that Picasso in recent years: Cloud Gate
(aka "the Bean") by Anish Kapoor probably holds the title for most photographed public art piece in Chicago these days. But not everyone has taken pictures of it just yet, including some major search engines. I grabbed some shots from FlashEarth.com
comparing the imagery of Millenium Park - the home of Cloud Gate - on MSN, Yahoo, Ask, and Google. Here are the results:
Quite a difference. Only two of the four show the Bean. Only two of the four show a completed pavilion. Ask had some tiling issues that led to a combination of b&w and color tiles, but at least the data was relatively current.
Notice any other differences?
walweb, it looks like you're using Google Maps on your site, so the images are no different from the Google image used above. What am I missing?
