Ars Technica: Google Maps adds color to help you hone in on points of interest. “Google is rolling out a new look for Points of Interest (POI) on Google Maps. These are the little business location icons that pop up when you’re browsing the map or viewing search results. Google says it has updated Maps to ‘better highlight the information most relevant to each experience (think gas stations for navigation, train stations for transit, and so on).’ You probably don’t care about local gas stations when you’re looking up subway locations, so Maps will be smarter about which icons it shows you.”
