On the map builder map the names of streets in Corvallis, Oregon are not the way they are used here, and there are some errors. For example all of the streets in the Northwest quadrant of the city are shown beginning with "Northwest". Although this is technically correct, maps in this area the practice is to omit the Northwest prefix, and it is simply show the street name. Even when the prefix is used, it is generally abbreviated as NW: Northwest Kings Boulevard is generally Shown as Kings Boulevard, and when we use it to mail a letter we show it as NW Kings Blvd.
  At least one street name is incorrect: Circle Blvd. is shown as Northwest Boulevard.

    Hi Bob,

    This information is pulled from openstreetmap.org, which is a public compendium of map information. It relies on users, especially locals, to update map data. You are welcome to make changes to that site and then when we pull updates from there (usually quarterly), the changes should reflect on our map.

    Thanks,
    Julie
