    Google Testing Knowledge Graph in Google Maps

    It looks like Google maps is now displaying "Quick Facts" in Google Maps now. I'm only seeing it on well known attractions, like the Goldan Gate Bridge, as well as cities.


    Google’s Knowledge Graph Expands Into Google Maps

    Google is expanding its Knowledge Graph into Google Maps.The company has confirmed to Search Engine Land that some locations in Google Maps will now get a new “Quick Facts” info card, and that the data are from Google’s Knowledge Graph. This new feature began appearing on Monday (May 12).

    The info card appears in the left content space and — like the other cards — can be expanded or minimized accordion-style. This new “Quick Facts” card might appear for places ranging from lakes and mountains to cities and countries, as well as important points of interest (like the Space Needle, shown above).

    re: Google Testing Knowledge Graph in Google Maps

    Thanks Justin, I noticed that yesterday as I was flying out the door to get to my CAT Scan, then got home late and was too tired to post.

    So thanks for sharing and it will be exciting to see if this expands to small business listings instead of just bigger brands and attractions.

    Would that be a Google cat?
