How it works:


You make an edit at google.com/mapmaker and
submit
it


Your edit will then be “pending review” and remain
unpublished until an official Google reviewer takes a
look and approves it
.


If the reviewer has questions or suggestions, he or
she will usually request more information.


If their suggestions are reasonable, you make the
changes and resubmit. If the suggestions don’t make
sense, you generally end up having a debate in the
comments

How Much Detail?

Useful details:


Speed limits, sidewalk information, turn restrictions
and traffic signs, as well as information about
restrictions on traffic or pedestrian use allow you to
tune your walking, biking and driving directions
around campus.


Parking lot information gives visitors valuable
information and saves them time looking for parking.

It’s
simple to set up Map Maker to send you an email
any time someone makes an edit on your
campus


It’s
worth reading

Reviewing Edits


Working with Reviewers


Try
to remember the reviewers are trying to protect the map data. Anyone
with a Google account can submit map edits, so careful review is important.
The more edits or reviews you do the more reviewers will trust you.


Always fill out the comments
section



Provide as much supporting information as you can, including photos and
links to campus documents.


Be patient



It can be frustrating to have someone who has never set foot on your
campus suggesting you might be wrong about something you walk past
every day. If they ask for more information or deny your request, don’t be shy
about explaining yourself further.


Don’t guess



If you don’t know, find out. If you can’t find out, leave a field blank. One
wrong or questionable field could keep your edit from getting published for a
long time.

What if your Satellite Imagery is
Outdated?


It’s easy to trace the existing satellite imagery to add
buildings and it’s fairly easy to get those edits
approved


To
add things that aren’t represented on the map you will
need to activate image and KML overlays in Map
Maker


Then
you can either buy a newer satellite image and
use that for reference or travel around campus
following the roads with your smart phone and an app
that uses the GPS to trace your path
.
