Add new locations to Google Maps

A while back, Google Maps gave people the ability to edit the locations of businesses.  If you know of a local business that has moved or closed, you can edit it on the map.  These screens show me removing a local Dairy Queen that recently closed:

Now they’ve enhanced the user editing feature of Google Maps and now allow you to add new items to the map.  I wanted to add one, but the few new places near us were already in there.  However, adding a new location is very easy:

  • Search the listings.
  • Click the “Add a place to the map” link at the bottom of the left column
  • Drag the marker to the location of the business, fill in the details, and submit it.
  • That’s it!

Here are a few screens of how that would be done:

Click the Add button in the lower left cornerDrag the marker to the proper location and fill in the info

With any of those editing features, Google still keeps a copy of the original listing, along with a record of each change that is made.  All of this will only serve to make the data in Google Maps even more accurate for everyone to use.
