Google Maps is a fantastically handy service, but its data isn't infallible and it often places businesses and other landmarks well away from their real location. A new problem report button lets users point out those kinds of issues to Google and help improve its data.
While I invariably use Google Maps when I'm planning travel, I've learnt to be suspicious of its placement of buildings, especially outside major Australian cities. It always pays to double-check by using Street View, which as often as not reveals that the claimed location of a motel is actually an entirely empty block. Having the ability to report that in a single click is a useful option. Google also says it has improved the quality and detail of its Australian maps overall.
Error fixing won't necessarily be a high-speed process — Google says it hopes to resolve each edit within a couple of months. Here's a video walkthrough of how the problem reporting option works:
