More fun with Google Maps and its perplexing take on the geography of Los Angeles. I will say, this one seems more like a technical glitch than a failure of concept. Reader David Murphy noticed Google has moved the Century City Louis Vuitton store through Beverly Hills, up and over Coldwater Canyon into the hills of Sherman Oaks. Only one mountain range removed from reality, not bad. I re-tried the map search three times using different ways of asking the same question, but the answer was the same. Want a bag, go to the Valley across Coldwater Canyon Avenue from the Harvard-Westlake School.
Double fail: Just for kicks, I asked Google Maps to map out my driving route from the Louis Vuitton store in Century City to the town of Wahoo, California — a location known only to Google Maps and the websites that use its mapping base. (Wahoo is a long-abandoned historical place name along San Fernando Road in what's now Sun Valley.) That map is after the jump.
