Google quietly updates local search with an image carousel

Tom Spring | June 24, 2013
An addition to Google search introduced with little fanfare this week is a carousel of images served up with local search returns.

"As you search the map, star places you like and leave reviews, the map starts to adapt and can suggest things like restaurants you might enjoy or the quickest way home. In other words, the more you use the new Google Maps, the more helpful it becomes."

Put a different way, Maps and local search will get better as Google watches over our shoulder as we plot local nightlife, hiking, soup, and dog parks on its maps. I guess there ispower in numbers-and soon more advertising profits for Google.
