Is north always up?

I feel a little silly asking this but is it wrong to assume north is always up when looking at maps on the web? This Google LatLong post threw me off. In this case it might be only because there is no north arrow on the photograph.


Is it finally here? I might be late to the game but I had my first experience with it from an Evite. Apparently Walgreens sponsored the invitation . I think I saw Mike Liebhold talk about this at Where 2.0 in 2007 with a very similar Google Map packed with McDonald's icons. This is interesting because my wife's first reaction was "damn there are a lot of Walgreens in SF". Yikes it worked.

Has anyone else spotted this in the wild?
