Dope St. [Aug. 27th, 2006|06:40 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Funny screenshot and explanation:


I guess it's really Dore St., somebody painted the leg of the "R" to make "DORE" into "DOPE", then some company acquired the data wrong, and it's now into Google Maps, and also Yahoo.... ?

Or is it really Dope on one side and Dore on the other?

Both Google and Yahoo (and a lot of others) use Navteq, so it's not surprising to see them both having the same incorrect data...

Still funny, though.

Now, someone just needs to paint in an "i" on Heron St. that's close by.

At least the city's official GIS dataset has it as Dore. The viewer is pretty spiffy too... It'll even tell you when they sweep each side of the street.
