And people at work wonder why I don't use live.com

Search strings:

  • 38.897644, -77.035722
  • +38° 53′ 51.52″, -77° 2′ 8.60″
  • 38 53′ 51.52″ N 77 2′ 8.60″ W

maps.google happily accepts all of those (and many others, I’m sure) and brings up that map.

What do I get with live.com?  North Dakota and Oregon

It seems, at best, odd that if I’ve already done the geocoding for you, that you can’t take coordinates and show me that map.  Lots of people have GPS’s these days.

And, of course, the best proof of all – “it works with Google” 🙂
