Several place name misspelt in north west Wales RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - does anyone know how I contact bing to highlight several place name errors? I've left feedback on the actual maps site about 20 times over a period of 4 months, but the errors are still there.

    There aren't any errors on Google maps- -I prefer Bing maps, but not with this many mistakes!

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks / Diolch

  • Reporting through the bing maps site is the best way to report issues like this as they go directly to the data team. That said, there are a few things that could be the cause of this issue. One of the most common is that the culture setting of the map is different for what the names are in. For example, the names may be displayed using the "en-GB" culture (British English), but you are expecting the spelling to be in "cy" (welsh). Taking a quick look at the bing.com settings page it doesn't look like there is a region setting currently for Wales which is likely the issue.
