Business shows up twice on Google Maps, under slightly different names

Hi! Our research organisation shows up on Google Maps when you search for its full name (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica), but also if you search its abbreviation (CWI). However, these two options point to a slightly different location (just a few metres away from each other, yet still in the same building). In short, there seem to be two different entries for one and the same organisation. Is there a way to merge the two entries, and have both point to the same information and location?

Hi Ans,

 

Do you own either of these listings on Google? The best option is to claim and verify one of the listings, and then report the other listing as a duplicate. Once you own the listing, you will have the ability to log in and edit the map pin location.
