How do I report an error on google maps?

I’ve found a significant error on google maps. How can I report the error to them?
I’ve submitted a trouble report with Navteq. I believe they are google‘s supplier of mapping info. The location error is in Paris, France so maybe not.

How to find gps coordinates on google maps from a cell phone photo?

I have taken pictures from my cell phone, and in the info it shows gps coordinates.
I just want to know how to use those coordinates on a website like google maps to find the location

Administrator answers:

In most cases, you can paste the information directly into google maps, and it will automatically find the location for you. Google maps understands a lot of different ways of expressing coordinates. Occasionally the coordinates will be ambiguous and you’ll be in the wrong hemisphere.

The website below will automatically give you a google map from a jpg image without you having to do anything.

Lizzie asks…

what is the difference between Using GOOGLE MAPS and using a GPS.?

I recently bought Sony Ericsson 705. It has Google maps in it but no GPS…
I want to know wether i am missing a lot by missing the GPS or are they one and the same thing.

Administrator answers:

Google maps are just maps. GPS units with proper mapping for the area you are traveling can give you turn by turn directions if you have the correct type unit for this purpose. GPS units give the exact location on the earths surface of your position. GPS and google maps are like comparing apple and oranges.
