Apple Maps Business Listings Data Suppliers By Country

Apple Maps Business Listings Data Suppliers By Country

|

Note: This list is very much a work-in-progress.  Let me know if you can confirm this info or if you think any of it is incorrect.

I have noticed a lot of confusion about how to add listings to Apple Maps for different countries. While you can do so via the “Report a Problem” screen on Apple Maps, all businesses should also make sure their data is up to date on the relevant data supplier for their country. Failing to do this could mean that your business info gets overwritten when Apple gets a new update from a supplier whose data it trusts more than the data you have submitted.

I have put together this list of data vendors by country to help make it easier to figure out where to go to update your data:

      Rafael, I haven’t figured out where they are getting their Brazilian data from. It may be Acxiom, but I am not sure.

    New Zealand?

  • Kerry

    What a debacle!! Our Australian business had the correct address under Google but Apple info is at least three years old – yes really. There is no way to correct the detail as there is no country drop down for Australia on their correction form. Any smaller company would go out of business if it treated it customers like TomTom.

    Australia?

    • Andrew Shotland

      Not sure. They are taking reviews from Yelp for Turkey.
