Google Map Place Markers

From We Make Money, Not Art:

Views of urban space is an interesting realm to which Google with their mapping applications are currently developing a quasi-monopoly on. Yet, it's kind of funny how for example places are being marked in Google Maps - its slightly weird red markers don't scale with the aeriel photographs below, cast a gigantic shadow but already have gained an iconic quality to them.
