Update: Provide Feedback to Google On Map Errors

Update: I got word back yesterday (Sunday) on my requested update - but only after I re-reported it on Friday. I think the original request while logged, got lost in the “launch day” shuffle. The reply:

Hi ,

Your Google Maps problem report has been reviewed, and you were right! We’ll update the map within a month and email you when you can see the change.

Report history
Problem ID: E176-3579-9E42-682D

Your report: Not a one way street. Also geocoding is backwards.

Thanks for your help,
The Google Maps team

I’m looking forward to my house being on the right end of the street again!

There’s a new “report a problem” link available, along with some new US data, per the Lat Lon blog. Per TechCrunch:

On Google Maps, you’ll now notice a “Report A Problem” link to the bottom right of the map where you can easily let Google know if there have been changes to a particular location, destination or roads. Google says that they will confirm suggestions with other users and data sources and will be able to determine the edit within a month.

The best part, and something I don’t recall NAVTEQ and Tele Atlas offer: a check box for “e-mail me when the problem is resolved.”
