Google more often then not features aerial imagery from Burning Man in Google Earth. If you did not know just by using the historical imagery feature in the Black Rock, NV area you can find images from many of the past years as well.
This year’s festival pops off today August 26th 2013 and Google has gone above the call of duty and further created a very detailed map of every street at the event. The roads and streets are viewable in Google Earth, but those that want an easier perspective use Google Maps instead.
Anne-grig-non. Kemin dé la Coat-Sainte-CaTH-er-in. Autoroot Trans-ca-NAY-di-ANNE. These baffling mispronunciations might sound familiar to any Montrealer in need of directions from a navigation system set to English.
"Only a Montrealer can appreciate this voice recognition error," Reddit user u/mrmdc wrote in the caption of their post, a screenshot showing Google's attempt to send them to "the corner of leisure and lingerie" — a salacious interpretation of the city's boulevards "Léger" and "Langelier."
"I prefer the mistake tbh," u/mrmdc wrote.
The post inspired other Montrealers to take to the comments with their own favourite navigation system misunderstandings.
User u/BaguetteStix's "Boulevard Renay Luhvaysqueue," u/JohnWesternburg's "Roo Hokelaga," u/seanziewonzie's "Roo Gene Tallen West," and u/zuss33's "Roo Day Carey" are some of the most popular offerings.
But u/mrmdc told MTL Blog their favourite has to be u/curry_fiend's "Kemin duh la kote dess nayjess."

On May 10, one of the world's largest technology companies, Google, announced its plan to acquire new property near Montreal, which will be used for a "future data center facility" — if everything gets approved in the process.
Google described this potential new facility as "an important addition to [its] long-standing presence in Québec."
"Based on industry standards for data center builds and our own experience, once construction begins on a data center, that construction phase at its peak can provide work for 300-500 people and ultimately an operational data center can employ dozens of people, at least 20-30 in skilled roles," the company wrote in a news release.
Google is aiming to run all of its business on clean electricity by 2030, and said, "as one of the world’s largest producers of hydropower, Québec is an important region for helping us achieve this ambitious sustainability goal."
The new data centre facility is expected to be located in Beauharnois, Quebec.

Description: Some people call this home on Rue Belsize "the piano house" because it resembles an open grand piano. Others see a spaceship, a roller coaster or something from The Flinstones — so it's pretty much the Rorschach test of Art Deco architecture.
Description: No, you're not seeing double. This is SERIOUSLY a completely different house than the first one on the list. I know, right? People say this one looks more like a rollercoaster or a molar (yes, like the tooth).
The interesting thing is it only really stands out from the back, visible from Rue Fleet.
Description: Given that Montreal is known for its colourful rowhouses as well as its brick duplexes and triplexes, it's actually more jarring to see a building that's been painted completely black. But there's also something so aesthetically pleasing about it — don't you think?
Description: This modern house will delight car enthusiasts everywhere and have everyone else shaking their heads. Then again, if you can afford a beautiful vehicle, it makes sense that you'd want to show it off — almost like a piece of art.
Description: You've probably stood by the docks at the Old Port, looked out across the water and marvelled at Habitat 67 — whether it's because you dream of living there or you think the housing complex is a strange-looking eyesore.
Either way, Moshe Safdie's Expo 67 Pavillion has become an iconic piece of Montreal architecture.
Description: From the outside, this space looks fairly normal. Inside? There's a fully functional rock-climbing wall behind the living room and beside the kitchen. Talk about a statement wall! Someone in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie is really dedicated to their sport.
Description: If you're familiar with Saint-Henri lofts, you'll know that many of them, while gorgeous, have the exact same feel — wood floors and exposed brick. Well, not this one! The checkered floors and quirky accessories make it feel like a chic Alice in Wonderland fever-dream.
Description: From the ornate fountain on the lawn to the brass lion statues guarding the front door, this property is extra in every single way.
It's called Versace Manor because of the Versace mosaic swimming pool tiles, Versace marble tiles all over the house, Versace door handles, 9-foot-tall Versace curtain holders and Versace sink in the powder room.
The home was inspired by "Versace Greek Key" — and it's for sale. It could be yours for a cool $7,777,777.
