There are two bugs to report in the Google Maps space. The first is that the Google Maps Terrain view has removed the country labels from the maps. The second is that categories are being added to business listings without them being added by the business owner in the local business center.

The maps terrain issue was reported in the Google Maps Help forum. Here is a picture of what I see in the terrain view. As you can see, the country labels seemed to have disappeared:

Brian from the Google Maps team said, "Thanks for reporting. I made sure this issue was escalated to the appropriate folks and I'll post an update here when I see it."

The other bug has to do with the Google Local Business Center. Some are reporting that unwanted categories are being applied to their business listings automatically. A different Google Maps Help thread is tracking this issue. Google Maps employee, Linda said, "Thanks for starting this thread. I will gather some information and get back to you all soon."

Hopefully both of these bugs will be resolved shortly.

I just noticed that the labels in Google Maps Terrain view are back (as of Jan. 28, 2010 in the evening, eastern time).
