Perhaps I mis-understood. It was posted after this posting

which I interpreted as meaning the form to report incorrect locations for Dunkin Donuts and other advertisers. You did mention POIs but I didn't make the switch.

I doubt it. I'm guessing it is up to the advertiser to provide correct locations.

I regularly post corrections to Bing. If I get an UR about wrong location I go search for it in Bing (assuming the UR actually gives me the address or name of the POI), almost without fail the error is obviously with bing so I submit a correction report. And I have seen a few get corrected, it's not quick, but it does happen.

Updating Dunkin Donuts location?

Postby Freshmixture » Mon Nov 19, 2012 1:03 pm

Are there any plans to being able to move markers to their proper spot on a map?

Cheers!

Updating Dunkin Donuts location?

PhantomSoul wrote:I've found that most UR's complaining about the wrong location of something is because Bing (or Google (or whichever directory you select from that list along the bottom of the screen on Waze when searching for a destination)) does not translate that destination's address to the correct lat/lon GPS location.

To resolve it, we need to relay the problem to Bing (or other directory if the UR specifies it) by reporting it to them, and then mark the UR as solved, since the issue is out of our hands.

Of course, if I can tell the complaint is invalid or otherwise bogus, I mark the UR as not identified.


These don't have anything to do with a search. These are the locations of the paid advertising pins on the map. These have been set on the map and no changes to external providers data will fix them on here.

The only way to correct these is to fill out the form Alan referenced earlier in this thread.

If Bing or Google has a wrong location on the search, then please feel free to submit a correction directly to them, but this thread is specifically about the paid ads.

No, these aren't for incorrect POIs, these forms are for reporting incorrect advertisement placement only.

It was xteejx who mentioned POIs, and I was clarifying that the forms are not for POIs, but for advertisements.

What is the recommended way to handle user created general errors regarding a "Dunkin Donuts in wrong place" report?
