How can I report a wrong place name? supermeeshi 5/5/12 3:30 AM
I would like to report an error that Google earth is having. My home town in Venezuela has the wrong name! The name of my Home town is TamaTama, but google has labeled it Predra Lais. There isn't even anything near us (or in all of Venezuela for all i know) that is called Predra Lais. I would like to get the correct name down. So any help is appreciated. Thanks!

There is no report mechanism for Venezuela, you need to make the changes yourself in Google Map Maker.
Center Google Maps in the area you would like to edit and click the link that reads Editar en Google Map Maker at the bottom right corner of the map.
Edits in Map Maker go through a moderation and approval process before accepted. Once accepted it should eventually find its way to Google Maps.

Anything can be edited in Google Map Maker, are you saying that the name of the town is blocked from editing?
Could you please provide a link to the town's location on Map Maker.
Thank you
