Apple Apologizes for Its Maps Problem

Producing a poor map can have disastrous consequences, especially if that map is widely disseminated.  Given that people rely on maps to be accurate and base decisions on spatial information, it is the mapmaker's responsibility to not go live with a map (or mapping platform) until it does meet the standards of expectation.

I am glad that Apple has moved away from relying on google maps. I have not had a problem with Apple Maps domestically.
