How often does Google update their mapping information?

Google is constantly updating and adding new information to their Google Maps platform. For most newly built shopping centers, apartment complexes and residential developments Google will typically get the roads added within a year or two of construction. Individual address locations may take longer to add, based on variables like when Street View imagery becomes available for the area, user submitted change suggestions, or what other data might be submitted by other sources that Google uses. At 352Maps we can greatly accelerate this process through our Google Maps updating services. The typical Google Maps updating project takes 352Maps about 2 weeks to complete.

How often does Google update their Street View imagery?

The first thing to consider is the fact that Google is collecting Street View imagery for the entire world! To accomplish this massive undertaking, they have a fleet of vehicles deployed around the globe that are adding new imagery every day. Our experience indicates that Google will do partial updating to larger cities and more densely populated areas once a year (and sometimes even more frequently than that). However, these updates will only cover part of the subject cities or areas. So, for larger urban areas it usually takes about 2 or 3 years for the bulk of that Street View imagery to be updated. For less populated towns and rural areas the updating schedule for Google Street View imagery varies quite significantly. A major road running through a small town or rural area might get updated once every couple of years or it may be 4 or 5 years before it gets updated again. For sidestreets in smaller towns and for most roads in very rural areas, the only imagery may as old as 2007 or there may not be any Google Street View imagery at all.In general though, Google seems to be picking up the pace of Street View imagery collection each year. At 352Maps, we specialize in the capture and publication of Street View imagery for all types of properties. We can ensure that your property is captured in a way that presents it best on the Google Street View platform.Most of our mapping projects can be completed in 2 weeks or less.
