    Official Google Announcement: Mapmaker is Going to be Shut down in March 2017!

    Thanks for the news, Joy

    https://www.imprezziomarketing.com/g...-off-mapmaker/

    Anyone know if there is another way to do similar research on a listing other than mapmaker? Will be a pity to see all that history go into google's black box.

    Losing the history will most certainly be a disappointment if that happens.

    I'm trying to remain hopeful that they will transfer that feature to Maps but I'm not holding my breath. You could see recent history by looking at cached versions of a page but that doesn't go back years obviously.

    Editing them just goes through Maps, not MapMaker.

    Wow, that's a big deal. I agree, the history is the number one thing I'll hate to see go, especially for spam hunting. We'll see what happens.
