So "map tiles" covered all the ways map updates happened.
Now, "map updates" includes
* updates that happen when the tile is updated (such as new places, creation or edits to segments, house number) - some trigger tile update while others do not
* updates that happen immediately (such changes to place names and other place details (?), creation or edits to closures)
* updates to search index -- once a HN or residential place address is saved, it might be uploaded with the tile it is on, but might not replace previous results in the address search index until some future date
I would like to generalize this page to cover all the ways in which the map gets updated, call it "map updates" or something similar, and keep this current page title as a redirect.
Place creation can go live immediately, I've created public and residential places, and been able to route to them within minutes. (The search index may not update as quick so it may be hard to find a new place by name, but a a new residential place which updates routing destination worked perfectly within minutes for me this week. A way to test public places is to do a category search from nearby and you'll see it listed and Routable right away.
