Move a marker

If you notice that a place marker is positioned incorrectly, you can correct its location on Map Maker :

  1. Search for the feature that you'd like to move.
  2. In the info window, click Edit and select Move Location from the drop down menu.
  3. Move the marker to the correct location on top of the building. The old location will appear as a gray marker and the new location as a red marker on the map.
  4. Click Continue to verify the details.
  5. Click Save.

Best Practices:

  • If you are moving a marker for a feature located at incorrect city, state or country, delete the feature and create a new one at the correct location.
  • You can edit places while they're still under review. The new edit will be logged as a separate edit. Edits are automatically saved as a draft until you cancel or submit.
