Who’s Providing Google’s Traffic? No one’s telling.

My first thought on seeing the announcement of the new service (available in just a few US cities) was, “who’s providing the data?” (The big news in any of these announcements is who has found the latest undiscovered country of unique or best quality data? Recall Microsoft’s recent deal with Intermap…) Google said it comes from a “variety of sources.” Ok. John Cook wondered if Inrix, which is located just near Google, and is a Microsoft spin off (I didn’t know that!) is involved. Google gave no comment. Inrix said, no, they are not involved with Google.
