One of the problems about Apple maps was that there was lack of data of places. We could not find the correct place we wanted to go to. So Apple gave us the option of reporting bugs and in that put up solutions.. but this will take a lot of time. We report, then they check, then they release an update, too slow..
So i have come up with a new way to solve this and this will only take a couple of months. This is only my idea but its great.

The people of an area know most of the places, location and description. Apple employs people to fill up data in the maps but With my idea it's easier and faster..
What they should do is they should make the maps interactive!

Why not let users input the information in the maps itself and make it available to the rest of the world.

we know where the places are and what is its description, so it would be amazing to let millions of people to enter the data themselves and make it available to the rest of the world.

no one would upload a false data .. this will be exactly like wikipedia where users around the globe edit and upload new information

By doing this millions of users will input millions of places on the maps in just a couple of months!!!!

it's not impossibe.. Twitter,itunes, AppStore and other places where we upload comments and the whole world can see it, it will be just like that!!! And even Apple can keep uploading new information..

conusmers will upload every information.. the address, the name, the phone number , photograghs(if possible),... every thing!

this mapping system will be the best mapping sytem around the world and it will really be REVOLUTIONARY!

the users would be able to edit the data uploaded by others also in case of mistakes.. Apple could help us by allowing turn by turn directions..
Apple does not need an update for that, they just add it and its there!
Only major bugs need update..
I don't think my idea is wrong

Waze ( a social mapping app ) is already doing it ( doing socially map updation )

They allow power users / constant users the rights to update

You're update area / area of influence grows along your regular paths ( to put it very very simply !!)

Or say waze has been trying it for an year or two

Still in my area waze is far behind google maps

Google maps is something else ... They have been secretly doing what you were saying for some 10 years on iPhones android windows and everywhere when no one else was on the scene !!!!

You already can add and report changes on maps. It just isn't a well publicised feature.

Probably yet another case of aaple doing things but doing them without energy and without flair
