Microsoft acquired MapInfo, and my school’s name is misspelled!! :(

Filed under: MapInfo — patrickyong @ 11:34 am

With the acquisition of MapInfo, finally we might have detailed Malaysia’s map in Virtual Earth with APIs and web services exposed to developers! So the first thing I did was to click on MapInfo and try to locate places I used to stay, studied or worked. To my dismay what I found out that Sek Tinggi Chung Ling (my high school) is misspelled as Chueng Ling, no wonder I can’t locate my school via the search box la!!
