You may have noticed flickr updated their map application. I noticed they forgot to include Canada. I posted this discrepancy in the support form in the form of these two posts:
I guess ON and QC are too small to get a name while West Virginia and Maine have plenty of room.
The first is from the Flickr places blog, http://www.flickr.com …es/New+Mexico/Albuquerque notice the banner map at the top? The one mostly cut off, for the design I'm sure, that's CANADA. feel free to name it.
The second example is much like the one I gave in the initial post about shots mapped along the north shore of Lake Ontario. Here is a picture of Moraine Lake in Banff National Park CANADA. Can't Get more Canadian than that. What name streaks across the map? NORTH AMERICA. sure, that's true but EARTH would be as well. Comparatively here is an image taken at the Grand Tetons, what name is bannered across the map? It's not NORTH AMERICA.
I'm sure this is ignorance and laziness rather than something deliberate, but wow, imagine a service that forgot to name the US?
