If you spot a mistake on one of the maps used by plotaroute.com and would like to help improve the maps, this guide provides advice on how to do this.
OPENSTREETMAP BASED MAPS
Most of our maps are based on OpenStreetMap data. OpenStreetMap is a community project that relies on the general public to contribute to improving the maps using local knowledge. There are over 6 million contributors worldwide. You can easily get involved by creating a free account with OpenStreetMap, which will then allow you to make changes directly to the maps yourself. Changes you make to map features will normally flow through to plotaroute.com within a few days. Routing related updates (such as changes to road access permissions), will take around 4-5 weeks, as our routing engine is updated less frequently.
To get started:
If you would like to learn more, there are various tutorials and lots of other helpful informarion about contributing to OpenStreetMap maps on the OpenStreetMap Wiki.
PLEASE NOTE: As map changes require local knowledge, we are unable to make map corrections on your behalf, as we are unable to verify the accuracy and validity of any proposed changes.
It is not possible to make corrections to Google Maps directly, but you can report issues to Google and in our experience these are normally acted upon. To report a map error to Google, click the "Report a map error" link in the bottom-right corner of the map.
