Flickr needs to fix the whole Map location Now

Mitchel25J (46 million + Views Thank You ) says:

Okay for the million times I've complained about the Maps, I've been a pro since 06 and this is getting old very fast. I just uploaded a group of photos and went to put the location on the map and the location that Flickr Map gave was 7 blocks away from the actual location.

So Flickr you folks have a choice either fix it or I'm going to file a Class-Action Lawsuit over the failure of service.

Is this an example of an "oxymoron"? Asking for a friend.

Seven blocks?
What's that in real money? Half a mile or so?
Is the OP a paying a compliment that it's so close, or making a complaint that it's too far?

It’s not really close enough, you know, if one had the map zoomed in all the way while placing the dot on it.

Of course, if the camera’s GPS put the coordinates in the EXIF, it would be the camera’s fault...

We're aware that there are improvements needed to more accurately return search results within the maps feature.

While we don't yet have a timeline for when these improvements will be made, we realize the importance accuracy plays in adding locations to your photos & the development of maps remains a priority for us.

Looks like you're in touch with support directly & we're happy to continue the conversation to address your concerns over email.
