Apple Maps require eternal vigilance. It's a big world out there filled with tiny, sometimes changing places, and if you find anything wrong with any of them, you can let Apple know by reporting a problem. That way, if something is missing, misplaced, or simply moved, you can submit newer, better information and Maps can update for everyone!

Keep in mind that your report may be in vain, but it's still worth it to try.
