I can't see my home address on Google Maps as it is a new neighbourhood.

How can I get my home address added into Google Maps?


Sign up for and use Google Mapmaker https://mapmaker.google.com/mapmaker

To Add an address:

  1. Click Add New and select Add a Place from the drop-down menu.
  2. Zoom in and drop the marker at the exact location.
  3. Select the category Address from the drop-down menu.
  4. Enter the address in the left panel.
  5. Click Save to finish.

    If you are going to contribute to Google Mapmaker, you should also consider adding your new neighborhood to OpenStreetMap: osm.org – John Reiser Aug 26 '16 at 19:48

    FYI, this answer, while correct in August 2016, is no longer relevant due to Google shutting down Map Maker as of March 31, 2017. – panoptical Apr 10 '18 at 21:55
  • @panoptical any idea if there's an alternate way to add/edit a residential street or address? I see only the option to add a business. – ashleedawg May 23 '18 at 2:44
