Adding a Street Name Alias to Addresses Along A Stretch of a Certain Street
0
My name is Dylan and I work for a local municipality in Michigan. We are hoping to have a street alias added to Google Maps for all addresses along a certain stretch of a major road in our city. We would like all addresses along this stretch of said street to be searchable by both both a street alias/nickname, as well as its formal address. For example, you could search 417 Michigan St. NE (formal street name) and 417 Medical Mile (street alias/nickname) and yield the same map result. Does anyone know if this is a possibility in Google Maps? Thank you!

Thank you for your reply! I work for the municipality in question (City of Grand Rapids, Michigan), but we are hesitant to participate in such a partnership/program, as it might require our municipality to sign a legal agreement of some sort with Google. However, feel free to correct me if I'm incorrect. I know this was the case with the Geo Data Upload program, hosted by Google.

Thanks again and look forward to hearing from you soon.

hi dylan,

"..... as it might require our municipality to sign a legal agreement of some sort with google."

yes, believe it would require an agreement.

i believe google would need some convincing to add an alias as you would like. would be best to find some way to work directly with them.

Got it. Thank you for the information. It sounds like our only option at this point would be to participate in a program like you mentioned. I will discuss with my supervisor and likely proceed with that route.

Thanks again!
