Regarding names of villages / towns / other places not appearing on their exact images.

It is observed that the names of the villages / towns and other places are not appearing on their images. When we see the images of theses it appears that the names are missing. However when search near these images the names will be some what away from the images. This leads to confusion to which image the particular name refers to. Though the images in satellite looks beautiful and extraordinary, since the name is not appearing right above it, we feel it is some what lacking. An attempt is required to rectify this deficit. It looks for anyone to see the beautiful images of their places and proud of it. In recent times google maps are becoming more and more attractive because of there brilliant images in satellite view and providing lots of information of that place.

In getting the information about the names of places you can take the reference from topo sheets of survey of India.

We hope some thing will be done on this matter.

The Travelers partner

I used several applications for map to locate the place and finding the best route, I never come to see an application like google maps. If you want to travel anywhere in the world and make use of google maps it will not disappoint you. If you traveling by a car it give you the right direction at the right time. On the way It will tell you take the next right/left. If you go by wrong route it will tell you “make a u turn or it will redirect you to the correct way. And many more advantages like mark the location, share the location, calculate the distance and time required between the points to travel etc. More over you can help Other travels by contributing new places photos to google maps. Google maps may give you gifts occasionally, but do not expect the gifts as gifts sending randomly. It is an amazing application available free for you. Thanks to the team of google maps.

Never reliable

The map is good one for navigation but mostly unreliable. I wonder if Gmap ever actually cares to verify or correct its data instead of blindly keeping faith on so called Local Guides who mostly work only to increase their own points instead of contributing to the improvement of the map in a legitimate way. For example, the map shows some weird name for my own locality listed nowhere with the local authority or known to the local people. And there is no way you can report that in plain English or fix it. And even if you report something wrong to Google that you know better than the local guides Google still keeps counting on their knowledge instead of yours. The company that I worked for has officially been closed and merged with some other company that I presently work for. But Gmap thinks I know less about my own companies than the map contributors and rejects my updates. Ridiculous!

The whole software is depending on a allegedly unreliable source of information with a proper verification process and so someone new to the locality can hardly rely on its information at least here in India.
