04:44 pm: Google Maps appears to have acquired a knowledge of the rest of the world, although only outlines and borders and very zoomed out imagery.

Hurrah.

And map of Leicester City Centre is greatly improved too, with one-way systems marked, as are some major institutions/buildings. (the universities, the infirmary, golf clubs, the shires, a few parks (but not viccy park). but not the haymarket or the stadiums.

still needs a lot of tweaking but it is nice to see some change.

Not bad at all...they even have my street on there and if you zoom in enough it has the street name...most people don't know it exists :o)

Mapping of Ireland and Northern Ireland are still poor, though.

Also, it's now clear that the projections that they're using for maps and for satellite images are very different.

Yeah. For America it appears they have distorted the satellite images to fit. Wonder what we'll see next.
