One of our ShowNearby Widgets customer spotted something different on Google Maps today and brought it to our attention. It's an interesting error from Google Maps and we felt it deserves a spot on our company blog!

ShowNearby Widgets allows businesses who have a physical shop or address to display their position on a map. Strangely though, while the address of that particular customer was somewhere in Ubi, he took the effort to zoom out from his store location and spotted the discrepancy.

Enough with the hints, take a look at this screenshot and see if you can spot the error....




Not clear enough? Reaching for that magnifying glass already? No worries, ShowNearby's got it covered. Here you go! Close up view....




Still unsure? Ok last try...



Notice how the land of shorthaired, green and M16 carrying 18 year olds (Pulau Tekong for the unsure) have "relocated"! Jurong island has also magically spawned itself with the spawn swimming over to the eastern side of Singapore!

Can someone kindly tell Google that Singapore has a very sensitive activity coming up soon and thus they should not play around with our islands too much....

PS: Thanks William for bringing it to our attention!
