Hotel is in the wrong location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I bumped into a problem, that I've been reporting for months on Bing Maps via Feedback, however still no results.

    When search for the Hilton Dubai The Walk the address is correct, but the pin location of the hotel is wrong. If try to use Directions from Dubai International Airport, it leads me again to the wrong location. Reported the pin to be moved to the right coordinates of the hotel(25,078442, 55,134782) numerous times via "Send Feedback/ Hilton Dubai The Walk is in the wrong location" because actually it's pretty far. However nothing happened. 

    Could you help me in updating the correct location? 

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind Regards,

    Val

  • It looks like the data provider for this data is foursquare. Checking foursquare it looks like they may have an updated location. I have asked our data team to look into this.

  • I believe the issue is that  geocoders for most countries interpolate the position of addresses based on the known address numbers at intersections. In this case the hotel is showing up on the right road, about a half a KM from the actual location. This is well within the margin of error for address geocoders in many countries. 

    If you work for Hilton, instead of using the feedback button, use http://bingplaces.com and claim your businesses. This will allow you to edit and update all Hilton locations and data that show up through all Bing and Cortana interfaces.

  • Hello Ricky,

    Unfortunately UAE is not among the supported countries in Bing Places Dashboard, so the business can't be claimed. The only way to update the actual location is to report via feedback button. Is there anything that could be done more in order to fix the problem?

    Regards,

  • Yes, the team put an override in our system for this location as we wait for the data provider to update their data.
