In May 2013, Google’s vice president took to stage and announced that Google was aiming to build “a perfect map of the world”. An honourable notion with almost utopian connotations — and why shouldn’t it? After all, Google has been at the forefront of leading the biggest change to mapping since the 15th century, when maps went from manuscript to print. Now they’re online and taking advantage of satellite imagery, maps are more detailed, accurate and multi-dimensional than they’ve ever been, but could such a thing as the perfect map ever exist?
