One of the students who attended our Open Street Map drive was in a trauma throughout the meet, musing why people make effort to mark places on Open Street Map when `The` Google maps is already there.

mbuf and I tried various examples, but we could see a `?` dangling on his head. Days ago, I came across one situation with Google maps; hope this helps ( see the image carefully ).
