Google Maps Allows iOS, Android Users To Edit Roads

Google Maps Allows iOS, Android Users To Edit Roads
Google shut down its Map Maker feature Tuesday and started allowing users to add topographical features including roads, highways, and rivers directly on Google Maps.

Google Maps’ data is a mix of the company’s own mapping and crowd-sourced data such as live traffic updates. This made Map Maker’s independent service especially useful when the company could not find accurate map data providers.

The company has instead merged its features with the Google Maps app itself, with the updated version making it easier for individual users to add as well as edit the roads.
“One of the most requested features to bring to Google Maps from Map Maker is the ability to add and edit roads. Today we are launching the first part of a revamped editing flow in Google Maps targeting road segment editing,” the company said in a press release.

The new option is now available to users of the Google Maps Android and iOS apps. According to Phone Arena, this might be the company’s first step in revamping the Google Maps user interface. Advanced users, known as the Level 5 Local Guides will be able to report issues on multiple roads in the Google Maps Android version.

If you want to edit roads on Google Maps, here’s what you need to do:
Open Google Maps on your desktop computer or the Google Maps app for Android
1 Tap on “=” to open the side menu
2 Scroll down and click on “Send Feedback”
3 Tap on “Edit the map”
4 Tap the road segment you want to edit
5 Tap “Next”
6 Suggest the changes for the road you selected from the following options:
7 Incorrectly drawn
8 Tap “Send”

The company says it is going to add even more features to the app in the future, including the ability to report a missing road, report issues with a route and report real-time closures as well as other events.
