Your map has road/address errors and people can't find my house

This issue is usually about maps on GPS devices, smart phone applications, or commercial online maps. The USGS does not provide road or address information for those products, almost all of which use road data from commercial sources. The USGS has no relationship with those companies.

The USGS mission does not include the collection and maintenance of road data or addresses. Roads and other transportation data on our current topographic maps are derived from other government agencies (like the U.S. Census Bureau) or outside sources.

See this GPS.gov website to get suggestions for correcting your mapping problem.
