No More 'Yellow Streets' in Garwood on Google Maps
Google's massive Mapping System is constantly evolving and over the years Garwood's street grid has been represented in many ways.
In the newest iteration 'yellow' streets are gone, replaced by white lines of varying widths (to denote major or minor thoroughfares). In 2009 365 noted that yellow streets were expanded to include blocks other than North and South Avenues, most notably West, Spruce and Pine. In the new version North is slightly wider than South Avenue.
Since 2009 Google has expanded its features. In 2010 365 noted when live traffic conditions were added, along with Photos. In 2013 Google added buildings.
