BHS on Google Maps

Last time InBerkeley looked, Google Maps had a bizarre error in the center of Berkeley. Berkeley High School was called Armstrong University.

Yesterday Google announced that it was using a new dataset for its maps, and whatever other benefits it may have, it looks as though it corrected this one major error for downtown Berkeley (hat tip: @jmccyoung). There still, however, is the oddity of placing Armstrong University just east of BHS, on Harold Way. That was the last location of Armstrong University, but it has been a vacant building for a number of years.
