Google Maps allows users to redefine markers

Google Map markers

Google is making refinements to its Maps area of its website, allowing users to move the location indicators brought up by address searches. The Washington Post reports that Google account-holders will be able to do Wikipedia-style edits to inaccurate address information. In order to prevent malicious users from playing with the green address markers, several limitations will be imposed. Google will only allow a move of 200 yards without its approval, and users will not be allowed to move markers for essential services - such as police stations, hospitals, or schools - as well as any business that is registered with the company's Local Business Center.
