If you have ever played the game Grand Theft Auto 4, you'll know just how crazy and huge the Liberty City Map is. In the game, Liberty City mimics the actual New York City, complete with the same skyscrapers, same freeways, same bridges and anything else you can imagine.
Grand Theft Auto decided to give their players an easier way to locate things when looking for tips and tricks online. Using a Google-powered mapping system, the old Liberty City Map now works almost exactly like Google Maps.
The Liberty City Map system was comprised of over 80,000 in-game screenshots that were broken down for over a million images to be used in the Google Maps version of the game.
