hello terrie,
 
welcome to the google maps community forum!
 
"why don't google use state government mapping like vicplan to help update new subdivisions?"
 
it may or may not already do that, either directly or indirectly, but even if it did, there are likely licensing and other considerations that would result in delays.
 
"i have lodged various edit requests and nothing has been updated to include my new property."
 
could you please provide full details of the address and its correct location?

Whereis and Apple maps have the address on their sites. So I'm confused why the mapping system that most apps use doesn't get updated as quickly as the other systems. If you put 18 Bud Street Lara in Whereis it comes up as per the plan os Subdivision.

hi terrie,

different mapping / navigation services will do things differently, and have different types of benefits and problems.

whereis and apple maps may have your address mapped, but may not have others that google has mapped.

the map data itself is also not necessarily the only way to offer value. there are also computing algorithms and processes that 3rd party apps may call on that offer additional value.

it is a bit like the differences between mapping / navigation apps. all provide the same basic functionality, but yet people tend to have strong preferences for one over the others. certain unique features and functions of each tend to bring about these preferences.

hi terrie,
 
following the submission of the edit request, you would have received an acknowledgement email message from google.
 
could you please post a screenshot of the acknowledgement email message here, showing full details, including the date the edit request was made, which should be toward bottom of message? you might like to mask out your email address.
 
please keep any / all such email messages from google until this matter is fully resolved, as they may be needed later if further assistance is required.

hi terrie,

could you please provide some photos of street signs?

perhaps from -

please provide photo/s that include the names of the intersecting streets in the same photo, making sure the names of the streets are clear and legible.

if the street signs of the intersecting streets cannot be captured in the one photo with the names of the streets being clear and legible, please provide 1 photo with both street signs visible, and additional photos of each of the street signs such that the names are clear and legible. if possible, please capture the photos in such a way the backgrounds show the photos are from the same area.

some examples -

Hi Terrie, 
Here is my take. Apple maps pull information from Yelp. We know Google's practice of data is key to making the user experience in Google Maps a superior service to Apple Maps.  With the increased drive in Apple's privacy essentially Apple maps can only depend on a third party to update data.  They are not using personal data to make improvements to maps. 
Google Maps is an online map service and location finder. Features dynamic, draggable maps, as well as satellite imagery by region. Google also offers a data partner program. check it out. Here you can update your community! https://support.google.com/mapcontentpartners/answer/9359574
Here is information on geodata and the basics! https://support.google.com/mapcontentpartners/topic/21600?hl=en

Hope this helps shed new light on the topic! 

Best

Boss Mom!
