Argleton - on the map or not?

Caught a great radio programme, Saturday last with Steve Punt about non existent places on Google maps.  Took us into the realms of maps, data, magic and copyrighting.

I listened because Argleton is supposed to exist about ten miles from where I was born so it was fun to think of this place having been conjured out of thin air thanks to Google. 

And the conclusion was that it will continue to exist in the ether of the internet despite now having incorrect data wiped from Google maps database.
