Pegman Google MapsGoogle announced on Google+ that they have added a new section to the maps result for a location search named "Quick Facts."

This section looks very knowledge graph like and has some very quick information around the location you are searching for. Some of the information pulls from Wikipedia and some from data sources used in the Google Knowledge Graph.
