What Happened to Google Maps? — Justin O'Beirne
"Given these trends, it's likely that Google Maps was optimized for mobile — and this explains some of the changes we observed earlier.

Unfortunately, these "optimizations" only served to exacerbate the longstanding imbalances already in the maps. As is often the case with cartography: less isn't more. Less is just less. And that's certainly the case here.

Google should add some of the cities back to its maps, and the maps would be better and more balanced."
