Been noticing a lot of new features on Google maps lately, but something especially cool is happening behind the scenes: user-submitted map additions and corrections.

If you have something like a small business that isn't showing up, you can change that! I hadn't noticed that option before,

Tech Crunch has been talking about this too:

Tele Atlas (the company that provides the data for Google maps) will have access to edits made by the Google Maps community to update the underlying maps.
In New Deal With Tele Atlas, Google Maps Sends Data Back

Tele Atlas is actually implementing the map corrections, so that gives us all the more reason to submit them. I was wondering, are any of you submitting corrections/additions to Google Maps?
