TripAdvisor Travel Map pin location errors

Hi folks,

Now that the TA travel map is back, we've been getting some reports of cities being pinned in the wrong location.

I've started this thread for folks to post pins that are showing up in the wrong place. That way our maps team can watch this thread and fix them (this may take a week or two, depending on their workload).

When reporting these, make sure to tell us the name of the city/country that is being pinned incorrectly. If you have lat/long or specific information that may help them pin this city correctly, feel free to add this as well.

Thanks!

I guessed as much - this is only a minor difference in behaviour,

Unfortunately too much of TA shows signs of being developed in isolation by separate groups who have not considered how it will integrate with the rest of the site or provide a consistent look and feel

Hi Jeanine.

I´ve noticed that there are some cities pinned in the wrong location:

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca (Costa Rica), which is located in the northern Pacific coast of the country instead of being in the southern Caribean Coast, near the border with Panama (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=puerto+viejo+de+talamanca,+costa+rica&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Parrita (Costa Rica), which is located inland in the country, and it should be in the central Pacific coast, between the towns of Jacó and Quepos (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=parrita,+costa+rica&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Playa Zancudo (Costa Rica), also inland instead of being located in the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=zancudo,+costa+rica&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Isla Negra (Chile), which is quite northern that it should be located, in the central Chilean coast (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=isla+negra,+chile&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Finally, there are some locations that used to be pinnable and suddenly are not any more:

Limón, Costa Rica (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=puerto+lim%C3%B3n,+costa+rica&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Chañaral, Chile (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=cha%C3%B1aral,+chile&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

San Fernando, Chile (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=san+fernando,+chile&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Santa Cruz, Chile (https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=santa+cruz,+chile&ie=UTF-8&hl=en)

Thanks for your help!! :)

Dear Jeanine,

this is to inform you I've noticed the spanish city of La Coruña is pinned in a wrong location.

These are its correct coordinates: 43° 22' 22" N 8° 23' 57" W

HI KaiserVito,

Thanks for letting us know! La Coruña will show up correctly in 24 - 48 hours.

@Jose Luis-- to tell us about cities that you cannot pin on the map at all, use our Help Center. Choose "Sites & Features" in the "How can we help you?" pulldown, then choose Travel Map" in the pulldown that displays next.

Give as much information as you can for its location-- coordinates like KaiserVito gave above would be great!

That will get your request to the right team here who can add it.

Thanks!

Jeanine

Dear Jeanine,

I found these other cities in a wrong location:

Bari - Italy - 41°7′31″N 16°52′0″E (this is pinned close to the correct location, but I think it's better to adjust it)

Porto Cesareo - Italy - 40°16′0″N 17°54′0″E

Best regards,
