    Viewing Edit History in Google Maps?

    There used to be a way to see edit history on a listing in Google Maps. This help article even references it (Introduction to editing places - Maps Help) but I can't find it on any listing.

    I realize that Mapmaker is the best way to see edit history on a listing, but if I'm looking at a listing in the UK where they don't have mapmaker, what would be the best way to see previous edits on a particular listing?

    Ya it was available on the old Place pages but from what I remember, it showed the same edits you'd see if you went to MM for the most part. But it was just a quick easy way to check. I don't know of a way to see edit history in UK.

    Hopefully Andrew or Gregg will see this and offer a solution, if there is one.

    Since GMM isn't available in the UK, you're out of luck. You may be able to post a request to google-mapmaker - Google Map Maker Issue Tracker - Google Project Hosting in hopes that they would allow the viewing of features and history until they open up editing in the UK. A suspected reason countries aren't included in GMM is data supplier contracts. Unfortunately I don't know of any way to view a features history in UK.
