Online mapping data to be updated for Greenbrier County

Posted:
GREENBRIER COUNTY, WV (WVVA) -

(Greenbrier County, WV) Greenbrier County Addressing and Mapping discovered last week that Google Earth did not have the most recent address data for Greenbrier County.

When the re-addressing for 911 started back in 2015, a contractor working for the county was supposed to send new address data to Google Earth.  Then the flood hit in 2016, and the data was never sent. 

Incorrect data in Google Earth can be an issue as Active911, the software used by first responders, defaults to Google Maps.

Al Whitaker the Director Greenbrier County Homeland Security, Emergency Management and 911 says that Google Earth now has the new address data and the update will take a "short while" according to Google.
