Hello. Has anyone had any success in asking Google to update the satellite view of their campus? Our view is more than 10-years old! We have lots of new buildings and roads that we need mapped. I’ve used the “Submit a Problem” forms on both Google Maps and Google Earth over & over for more than 3-years! Frustrating.

Jeff, this may not answer your question, but we have been working with Google for indoor mapping.

You may want to contact them about indoor mapping, as well as ask them about the satellite image. Here is the contact person:

Here's info about Google Indoor Maps...

In November 2011, Google Maps released an indoor navigation tool as part of its Google Mobile Maps for Android smartphone and tablet users. This new technology allows users to quickly and efficiently navigate through indoor
spaces, picking up where GPS leaves off.

Our initial launch partners included retailers, several major airports, and malls across the North America and Asia. Google would like to expand this partnership to include institutions of higher learning. There is no fee to participate and it will establish your college  as a technological innovator. I am confident that your students, faculty, and guests will find Google Indoor Maps to be a useful tool, and would love to discuss this with you in greater detail.




Thanks Susanne! They finally wrote back and said they're working it. I'll believe it when I see it. Meanwhile, I'll drop an email to Jacqui.
