Edit Google Maps using Google Map Maker

Have you ever tried opening Google Maps to look for you house and be sorely disappointed at the misspelled and oftentimes unlabeled streets?

Well, it is a good thing that Google has allowed the general public to edit Google Maps via Google Map Maker. However, changes are not implemented automatically since it has to go through an approval system. But of course we don’t want mischievous kids renaming cItY aNd StR33t names like this.

It is also important to note that Google Maps is not always accurate, for example, take a look at Camsur Watersports Complex, the location indicated on Google Maps is nowhere near the actual site. So go ahead and try out Google Map Maker and fix whatever needs fixing.

By the way, thanks to my friend who told me about this. Here’ his blog.
