Google adds local color with Place Search

Google is making another move to give consumers quick access to information about local places by rolling out Place Search, which clusters search results around specific locations.

For example, if a consumer searches for a museum in Los Angeles, the results will show each museum with relevant snippets of information and links from across the Web, making it easier to compare options. A red pin marks the location of each museum on a map.
