We’ve been getting quite an influx of questions about how to correct map errors in Google Earth lately (address in the wrong location, point of interest is missing, etc), so I thought it’d be worth revisiting that.
To start, you don’t actually fix the errors in Google Earth; you fix them in Google Maps, and those corrections are synced into Google Earth over the course of a few weeks.
To suggest a correction, simply right-click on an area inside of Google Maps and choose “Report a problem”.
The following screen will pop-up and will walk you through the process:
I’ve suggested quite a few edits to my local area, and all have been accepted into Google Earth/Maps and helped make my town more accurate. I’ve updated street names, new roads, closed restaurants, etc. I’m a heavy user of the GPS navigation features on Google Maps for my Android phone, so having an accurate map is very important.
The “report a problem” feature is a great tool to help make Google products more accurate for everyone. To learn more about how this process works, you can visit this page in the Google Maps support system.
