How To Search A Specific Area In Google Maps
When you look up a location on Google Maps, you can enter as much information about it as you know. If you only know the name of an establishment, that will often be enough. Any additional information, such as the street or neighborhood it’s in, can be added alongside the name. A slightly more obscure search feature in the app lets you search a specific area in Google Maps.
This is useful if you’re trying to find a local business/establishment but one of the same name exists elsewhere and is far more popular. Area specific search in Google Maps allows you to select a particular area and have Google Maps scan it for the place you’re trying to find. All other areas outside the one you select are ignored.
Open Google Maps and search for a restaurant, park, or bus stop. Once the app loads a location, you will see a ‘Search this area’ button appear under the search bar. Don’t tap it just yet.
First, pan to the area you actually want to search and zoom in to define the limits of the area. Once you have the area you want to scan centered on your screen tap the ‘Search this area’ button. Google Maps will search only that particular area for the place you looked up.
