Google Earth OND Name Change: Some Progress (42)

In post # 23 on April 3, I called attention to Google Earth’s error in terming our area “Old Davis North.” Several people joined me in using Google’s process to tell it about errors.
       I wish I could say that made a difference, but I cannot.
       Instead, a couple of weeks ago Google introduced a new program called Map Maker that allows anyone to enter suggestions for changes that are then reviewed by what Google calls “trusted reviewers.”

I started the process there and after some back-and-forth, the name change was approved today, as shown in the accompanying screenshot.

The catch now is that it does not as yet show up in the actual Google Earth. So, we shall see. JL
