What was involved

From 2013 to 2018 we’ve made copious edits to New Providence in GoogleMaps including adding

  • Sidewalks (to the base maps and as a layer in the maps above),
  • Bicycle suitability of our roads
  • Landmarks not only to the interactive map layers above but also in GoogleMaps, placing businesses in the proper building, updating business names, and eliminating duplicates, etc.
  • Google limits each map to 10 layers and 2,000 points, hence the need to break them into topics
  • Special thanks to the SRTS team and especially the Borough’s Senior Intern, Jimmy Evangelisto, who alone made over 350 edits Spring of 2016.  Together we’ve made well over a thousand (1,000+) edits.
  • If you know a path, cut through, or other feature that should be added or changed, you can submit the change to GoogleMaps yourself.
