It looks like Google IS trying to improve Maps after all! According to this article they are acquiring Skybox to have more precise/up-to-date imagery. I hope the MapMaker team has access to this so we can get rid of "fake" businesses that set up shop and take over the Local maps!

?Their satellites will help keep our maps accurate with up-to-date imagery," Google said in a statement. "Over time, we also hope that Skybox?s team and technology will be able to help improve Internet access and disaster relief ? areas Google has long been interested in.?
