A guide to maps

| Note | Events

If you find that an error message triggers or the map does not appear then it may be that you have entered an address that Google does not recognise or you have entered it incorrectly.

We find that Google prefers if you enter the address without ‘punctuation’ and in an ‘English’ address format. For example, enter the street number before the street name which is often not the custom in some countries. Here are some examples:

GOOGLE LIKES – 25 Rover Street

GOOGLE DOES NOT LIKE – Rover Street 25

GOOGLE LIKES – 146 Plantation Avenue Richmond London

GOOGLE DOES NOT LIKE – 146 Plantation Ave., Richmond, London
