    Vindigo had neighborhood searching on its Palm app a long, long time ago. Glad to finally have it on Google Maps.

    The other part of my colloquial local wishlist: if a business is in a mall, tell me that instead of making me figure it out from a map.

    Knowing which businesses are inside malls is historically a difficult problem. Often, malls are even on private roads and so standard geocoding tools miss them because the street can’t be found.

    On the neighborhood thing – which is more valuable: ability to do a local search using a neighborhood name or seeing the actual neighborhood boundary?
