We get a lot of emails from users that would like to report incorrect information. Perhaps a misspelled road name, incorrect building name, etc.
Fortunately, Google makes it very easy to report problems like that. You can read all of your options on this help page, but in most cases you’ll simply want to use the “Report a Problem” link in Google Maps. In Google Earth you can simply click the icon at the top-right to “View in Google Maps” and it will take you directly to the current location. Then right click the location to find the “Report a problem” option. Once reported and reviewed, the location will usually be corrected in Google Maps within a month, and then corrected in Google Earth at some point after that.
Here’s a brief video showing how it works:
