Are the lab section for the desktop version of Google Maps gone? Googling only returns old results, although I found this link https://maps.google.com/?showlabs=1 but it does not seem to make any difference.

Specifically I am looking for the lab that allowed the user to show maps with east or west, instead of north, up.

Google shut down most of their experimental labs features in 2011.

The only ones that still remain are for Gmail.
