Have you not read the Google TOS as well as the Waze warnings about using other copyrighted sources of data? Some countries have had all roads deleted due to misuse of other sources. Please do not.

I saw this one coming.. "A small child with a stick" :grin:

FYI, check out this post in the TN forum for a public source of data to verify road info.

Another reason to be careful when using commercial map data or even paper maps is you have to watch for their hidden, purposeful mistakes (called map traps).

I've caught one on Bing in my area just from casual browsing. The DeLorme paper atlas of Mississippi has a cute little bear eating a jar of honey drawn out of roads right outside of Tupelo. Tupelo honey, get it? Apparently cartographers have an odd sense of humor. :)

I didn't realize you could 'Copyright' a street-name that you didn't name in the 1st-place.
I'll look for the TOS pages before I leave.


It's not the street name that's copyrighted, it's Google's presentation of the data that is copyrighted. If you can get the info about the street name from a government source (website) then you are all good (at least in the USA). State DOT, DEP, and Town/City DPW or Tax Assessor are good places to look.

I was able to add the roads that you saw.
I used Google Maps :roll: to get the info I was unsure of.

I get a strange feeling of satisfaction when I make useful changes to the maps :geek:

I'm not sure, I'll pay attention the next time I head to Chattanooga.
I'll see about the streets, and add the info I can be sure of.

Yeah, that's a hard one. Is it any better in the last 3 days since they found and fixed the bug related to interstate gaps and re/routing?

BTW, looks like new neighborhood streets to the northwest of that location need adding. :)
