    Remember to validate your geo-locations...

    The Register has its usual take on the observation that an online hotel booking system located the Eastleigh Holiday Inn (Eastleigh, Hampshire, UK) in the middle of the English Channel:

    MapPoint 2004 correctly locates the postcode to Eastleigh (Southampton area).
    "Eastleigh Holiday Inn" isn't in the MapPoint 2004 database so it comes up with Bastille Holiday Inn as a best fit.


    I suspect the error is actually in the holiday booking program's database.

    I guess it was part of some MS mapping product or at least that is the inference from an MS rep saying the error is no longer in the latest version, see Letters --
