Mapping Campus with Google Map Maker

PST Poster Sessions Track

Texas Ballroom 1-3


Google opened up the U.S. map for editing in Google Map Maker in April. At that time, the Maps data for St. John Fisher College was incomplete and often incorrect. We seized the opportunity to correct the data on the map, add buildings, walking paths, and parking lots, and remove roads that didn’t exist. Now we are better able to leverage Google Maps to solve map related issues on our website & campus visitors can easily navigate campus using Google Maps on their mobile devices. This poster presentation will share lessons learned, strategies for getting your edits approved when your satellite imagery is out of date, and share some best practices and ideas from the Google Geo Users Summit.
