How to create a new category on Google maps?

Team,

I am trying to create a new category in Google maps. This is to add 'Crossroads junction' in Hyderabad, India. But Google maps is not allowing me to create a new category for Crossroads. What do I do now ?

Kindly help. Thank you.

 

Regards,

Hi @DanielTh you cannot create new categories by yourself. Try sending a suggestion on the place with Google Maps app.

Sometimes new categories been added through suggestions.

Thank you @LucioV. In India, people identify places crossroads or junctions. They become a landmark in themselves. I've tried all options to create a category.

I'll try sending it as a suggestion.

@DanielTh Intersections, crossroads, junctions etc are not named as point features with their own listings. https://www.localguidesconnect.com/t5/Mapping-Your-World/How-to-add-intersection-name-on-map/m-p/113... "This applies to all landmarks that exist largely for navigation purposes; they too most likely should not be mapped." If you've been adding 'Crossroads junction' POIs to the map you might want to list them here to check that they are mappable features

Re: How to create a new category on Google maps?

I want to add two missing places.

 

One is a city park with playgrounds and such. I can't fill in the open/closing times as they change over the months of the year, not the days of the week.

Another is a field or meadow used for dog walking and exercise amongst other things. There doesn't seem to be a suitable category for it. 

Bitterns Field: https://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/201136/parks_in_the_borough/664/hanwell_parks/4

 

What's the procedure for getting these on the map?
