(E) Correct Prevlaka Border on Google Earth


Google Earth needs correction on Prevlaka Case# 32045827

Dear All, thanks to Martin Cvjetkovic and this map corrected by Matko Cvjetkovic, please send your polite complaint and ask for correction in the next 24 hours. Prevlaka is too sensitive to stay like this much longer.

As far as I understood, red line is the corrected one, not yet on Google Earth, but done by Matko. Emails are below as well as first response to Martin Cvjetkovic from Google. Otherwise, Google has a great tool, compliment them as well.

Thank you for your note on how we can make our database better. Weappreciate your feedback and use your feedback to improve both ourdatabase and our Help Center.  We investigate all data errors and pass all imagery requests on to ourdata production team. Although we do update and/or add new data on amonthly basis, we do not have a list of when currently low resolutionareas or data anomalies will be updated.We're aware that some addresses are not roof-top accurate. This is theresult of how addresses are matched up to an exact position on the earth.We rely on a technique called "address interpolation," which is a fancyway of saying that we take our best guess. More specifically, we take thetotal number of addresses in a given block and assume an even distributionof the addresses along that block. For example, if there are ten addressesfor the 800 block of Main Street, we assume that the fifth address islocated at the halfway point. Ideally, we'd use a database that could precisely match addresses to theirrooftops, but unfortunately, such a database doesn't exist. We hope tohave a system in place in the near future that will allow users correcttheir location search results. We do, however, currently have a way to add and edit business listings:
