Google Maps Allows User Edits

Google has today opened up Google Maps to 'user edits'. Now anyone in the U.S., Australia or New Zealand, can edit a place on the map. For example, if you know that a business has moved location or has closed down you can change the information on Google Maps so that other users can benefit.

You can even mark that a business has closed to save someone an extra trip. To help protect the accuracy of edits users will still be able to see the original listing information and a history of the changes made.

As usual Google have released YouTube videos to introduce this new feature
