A Updated List of Known Apple Maps Business Listings Data Providers
Mike Blumenthal

apple-map-iconWith the release of iOS 9 and its increasing foray into local search, it is important to stay on top of who is actually providing business listing data to Apple.

To compile this list of both US and International business listing suppliers, I have used Apple’s Map acknowledgements and information that Andrew Shotland received via email last November.

I have confirmed that some of those on Andrew’s list that were not on the acknowledgment are still supplying Apple, so I assume that they all still are although until that is confirmed those on Andrew’s list should be viewed as “maybes”. Those that were on both lists are noted as sourced from Apple.
