Identify landmarks

Help ensure that businesses are recognizable for people trying to find their way using Google Maps. Tap Yes if you think the business can be recognized from the road by people driving by.

For example, in the photos below, the "Shell" sign is clearly visible in the first photo, even though the word “Shell” is not, so the best answer is Yes. In the second photo, neither the "Shell" sign nor the word can be recognized, so the best answer is No.

On the Crowdsource mobile app, you can pinch and zoom into the image to look closer. When you zoom in, it also helps us determine how easily visible the landmark is.

As always, if you’re unsure, choose Skip.


This task allows Maps to use these businesses as guideposts in directions, as shown in this example:
