    Map lists same locations wrong

      I took some photos at TD Garden in Boston. When I go to tag those photos in the Map in LightRoom it can't find TD Garden in Boston. Turns out it's listed as the Sports Museum which is a room in the TD Garden. Can I change the name so it says TD Garden rather than the Sports Museum?

          Where do you want to change the name, on the map itself or in the location metadata fields in the photo?  You can't change names displayed on the map -- they are set by Google Maps.

            Actually these names aren't the same as Google. If you type TD Garden Boston it finds it in google maps but in LightRoom it doesn't find it.

              Google provides the maps shown in LR.  But, as you've observed, what's shown in LR is somewhat different than at maps.google.com.   Regardless, you don't have any control over what Google decides to show in LR maps.
