There are several map services that serve up information about the UAB campus: Google Maps, Apple Maps, and UAB’s internally maintained Campus Map. Google and Apple maps are maintained by 3rd party companies, and UAB’s controll of the information is limited.

The best way to insure correct information across all map platforms is for the UAB community to suggest edits when they see wrong information. Below is information on how to report inaccurate or incorrect information on the various map platforms.
