    Google maps no longer shows city boundaries

    I have noticed that the last few days when you try to search a city to find the boundaries Google will show them in the knowledge panel but when you go into the map it will not.

    Is this just me?

    I can't find it right now, but I believe this is a known bug and G is aware of it and working on it.

    Re: Google maps no longer shows city boundaries

    Mike asked Google yesterday and we are waiting on an answer.

    I think you might have seen a Google Maps thread Scott, where a TC said that, but our contact has not been able to confirm if that's correct or not.

    Here is a public thread I can link to: LOCAL AREA BOUNDERIES DID NOT SHOWED

    Lots of folks there are pretty passionate about how much they need that feature.

    One of the Maps TCs told me it is a bug, it's the 3rd time it has happened this year, and last time it took 3 weeks to fix.

    In the meantime, the feature still works in Map Maker if needed.
