Google Maps Local Guides Uncover Missing Info and Check the Facts This is a specialist and very local area, as knowing the answers to Missing Information, like telephone numbers, website can be found on the web and certainly in person. Also a frustrating area as without a visit in person it's often impossible to verify or find out facts.

On passing through Uni Campus took this on mobile with Open Camera bracketed three images, auto upload to google photos and gifted one HDR, of course added it to maps. These days 99% of mobile photos are made using bracketing - quite a valuable tool in the mobile skillset..

update mon 7.45uk - ads have been restored, perhaps there is a 24 hr scan balancing mechanism [?] ..
Yesterday [sunday] I made this video. More or less immediately, YouTube flagged it as 'limited or no ads - unsuitable for advertisers' I cannot even request a manual review unless video sees 1,000 views in last seven days. I guess we really are in a turning point in machine learning when something in this video title, thumbnail, description or video content has caused the flag. Any ideas?

Of course I'm delighted to get through the 15k points, yet also feel a tad lost as next stop is 50k points at level 9 .. I really hope I keep going, sure there will be some carrot and stick to keep us doing what we do ..

Sign on an English local Village Hall. I actually met the lady whose husband was the wrestler, I think the only one in the village - go figure. https://goo.gl/maps/ov2u8RY7RmT2 ..

This may help a few people to see how a short visit can develop into 37 photographs, notice how I've used open camera Android to take three photographs to set up an HDR and also how I've used the Moto G4 Android to make six 360 photo spheres using Google camera. All what you see here is at maps right now, including three new places and four moving pushpins..

Fantastic and such an important story -- and the main reason why I'm a local guide myself, to help people find and see things they need. And what's not more important than a healthcare facility..
