Google to Add map data correction capability?

From: “Maps Guide Jen“  (Google-Maps-For-Business-Owners@googlegroups.com)
… it sounds like your addresses aren’t being recognized within our map data, all of which comes from NAVTEQ and TeleAtlas. We don’t currently have a way for you to submit your map data to Google Maps, although we’re working on it.

“Maps Guide Jen” the Google staffer at the Google-Maps-For-Business-Owners Group, provided the above answer when a business reporting that Google Maps was locating their business incorrectly. There is nothing more frustrating than when the underlying data to which a business owner has no access is wrong. It looks like Google will soon offer a solution that allows the business owner to correct that map data more easily themselves.

Please consider leaving a comment as your input will help me (& everyone else) better understand and learn about local.

    I had seen the reports of the acquisition but hadn’t given it much thought because they were speaking in terms of Europe.

    It looks like 2007 is gearing up to be a fun year.

  2. my guess is that endoxon is more of a technology acquisition than a data provider. they do neat things with ajax layering on the maps and basically running on tele-atlas data which they back fill with other sources here and there. the poi and business infos are provided by yellowpages players like goyellow or local.ch etc. who partnered with endoxon as their maps provider… So they would be in the position to do it, technically speaking.
