Zoutnet: Google has “stolen” Grobler Street

Zoutnet: Google has “stolen” Grobler Street. “The disappearance of a street in the CBD [Central Business District] is a serious matter for many residents. A number of businesses are situated in Grobler Street and these businesspeople may wonder whether people using GPS devices relying on Google Maps will be able to find their shops. In an era where technology dictates how we respond to problems, the first option was to point out the error to Google. This was done via Google Maps’ data-error reporting function. Not long after that, the friendly computer at Google sent an email, stating that ‘Your suggestion is being reviewed. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.’ A week later, after not receiving any further acknowledgement for the knowledge shared, some more options were explored.”
