Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C., is now visible on Google Maps. 

Google managed to update its satellite and street view imagery over the weekend to display a newly pained mural in huge yellow letters. The block was later renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza in respect to George Floyd.

Google subsequently renamed the 16th Street NW stretch as BLM Plaza, the mapping service was still using satellite and street view imagery from 2018. Apple, on the other hand, updated its maps as soon as the mural was painted.

This is what the freshly painted plaza on @Apple Maps looked like on June 10. Below is the updated version.

Other Black Lives Matter street murals appeared on streets in Oakland, Sacramento, Dallas, and San Francisco over the weekend. Both Google and Apple haven’t updated those San Francisco blocks yet.

UPDATE: June 15, 2020, 11:57 a.m. UTC Google Maps responded about the new imagery on the map and on Google Earth. In an email statement, a Google spokesperson said, “We constantly refresh our satellite and aerial imagery as it becomes available to provide people with the most up-to-date map possible.”
