Map Accuracy in Bing Maps, MapPoint

We take a look at some misplaced labels in Bing Maps app for iOS 6 and compare to MapPoint. The Magnificent Mile and the River East labels appear on Chicago downtown piers, not too far from where they should be, but clearly not in the right place. Apple Maps doesn't have a monopoly on digital map errors.

This article is not meant to be an exhaustive exploration of map accuracy, but purely some anecdotal observations that map errors exist all over the place.
