Pegman Google MapsGoogle's Daniel M. announced in the Google Maps Help forum that they have streamlined the process of improving the results within Google Maps.

Now when you click on "Report a problem", you will see an overlay screen that will walk you through fixing the issue you see. Daniel said this will make it "easier to make simple corrections to Google Maps in 20 more countries, without ever leaving the map."

This new improvement is now available in the following countries and regions: Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Guernsey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, New Zealand, Nigeria, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

You can initiate the "report a problem" click from either on the (1) bottom right corner of the Maps screen, (2) incorrect listing directly from the map or (3) on the left hand panel.

Here are screen shots:

(1) Click Report a problem at the bottom right corner of the Maps screen.
