Hawkstone Dental Clinic

7181 Winterburn Road

780-444-3002

https://plus.google.com/110720365095217843887/about

 

When I add the business address for my client (7181 Winterburn Road) it pops up farther up on the road than it is. How do I get the address in Google's records to change?

 Please:

  1. Type in 7181 Winterburn Road and look at the location marker
  2. Then Type in Hawkstone Dental Clinic and look at the marker

 - 2 different places

If you look at  links you can see the addresses of the businesses on either side of us which are correct.

@DeviceMedia P

 

I belive figured out the core of the issue.

 

To understand waht I'm saying do me the favor and search for the "plain" address "7181 Winterburn Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4K2, Canada" with https://maps.google.ca

you should get this view:

Screenshot 2016-07-13 at 16.04.32.png

 

You'll get a "did you mean" query and two choices.

Clicking the first one we get this:

and clicking the second offer you get this:

 

Screenshot 2016-07-13 at 16.08.47.png

 

 

All this means the street addres "7181 Winterburn Road Northwest, Edmonton, Alberta T5T 1S9" is obviouly not unique geocoded in GMaps for what ever reason.

 

This said:

I need to know where is the exact location of the business in question?

Don't search for the busines on GMaps but find the location by zooming and paning the map and apply thenoua rightclick and "What's here?"

You should get bottom the map the lat/long of this coordinates.

Paste them to here to get further advices.

it appears to be an strange Maps issue to get help for in the GMaps forum:

 

Please compare 

1#  https://goo.gl/maps/wiXM62KxgZk

(its a search for "7181 Winterburn Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5T" with maps.google.ca )

and

2#  https://goo.gl/maps/T3e8WaW9nZN2 (its also a search for "7183 Winterburn Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5T" with maps.google.ca )

The result of 1# is at 53.518516, -113.688819 while 

the result of 2# is at 53.507408, -113.686301

The above is only one part of the mysterious story:

An other part of the addressing mystery is this:

 

If you search for the lat/long 53.518516, -113.688819 for 1# and apply in GMaps at the location a rightclick like below

Screenshot 2016-07-30 at 17.52.11.png

and then click on "what's here?" you don't get the lat/long and the previously searched address but 

this:

Screenshot 2016-07-30 at 17.52.20.png

 

Doing the same with the result of 2# returns the previously searched address as viible in my next two screenshots:

Screenshot 2016-07-30 at 17.59.45.pngand 

Screenshot 2016-07-30 at 17.59.56.png

 

Frankly said I have no clue why all this mystery happens - but getting this disc
