Google is expanding its Knowledge Graph into Google Maps.

The company has confirmed to Search Engine Land that some locations in Google Maps will now get a new “Quick Facts” info card, and that the data are from Google’s Knowledge Graph. This new feature began appearing on Monday (May 12).

The info card appears in the left content space and — like the other cards — can be expanded or minimized accordion-style. This new “Quick Facts” card might appear for places ranging from lakes and mountains to cities and countries, as well as important points of interest (like the Space Needle, shown above).

Thanks to James Gibbons for the tip.
