Add a missing place to the map

You can publicly add places, like a business or landmark, to the map. On Android, you can also add the address of a house or apartment.

To add a missing place, follow the steps below.

Search for an address

  1. On your computer, open Google Maps.
  2. Search for an address.
  3. Click Add a missing place.


  • Name, location and category of the place are required. Other attributes aren't required, but might help to speed up the review process.
  • To find your home on the map quickly, set your home address. No one else can see your home unless you choose to share it.
  • If you're using Maps in Lite mode, you can't add a missing place to Google Maps.
