Google seems to be slow when it comes to updating aerial maps of The Boro in Tysons.
Several businesses — such as Whole Foods — are expected to open in less than one month, yet Google Maps’ map and satellite views still show the area as it was at the beginning of 2019 — under construction and incomplete.
When viewers search “The Boro Tysons,” dirt parking lots and partially completed buildings show up, rather than the fully paved streets complete with parks that in-person visitors can see today.
Map view is slightly more accurate with Flower Child, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Whole Foods and Fish Taco labeled. But there are empty spaces where the newly developed apartment complexes should be, and the locations of the buildings are incorrectly placed — strewn across Boro Place, the main street in the Boro.
Pop over to streetview, and people can see what The Boro looked like in June 2018.
Some community members have noticed the inconsistency and taken to twitter to express their concerns.
It is unclear when the issue will be fixed.
