Pretty simple really, could streetview be added to the submission process? And if so, will it be done. During the review process, reviewers can loom at street view so get to see a better view for accuracy and even see any nearby photosphere to help, but submitters are stuck with just the overhead view which quite often is stuck with shadows, buildings, trees etc. Blocking the view meaning its exceptionally difficult to be accurate

I've found it a lot harder to place POI markers in street view than in a simple overhead map view. Even when I review, when the street view appears by default, I can't tell if the POI marker I'm looking at is on the curb or three blocks away.
Do you really think you can place a marker in street view more easily? I definitely cannot. 😂
When you are trying to review an edit location for a trail marker or historical plaque, it is difficult to see them on a satellite map.
As someone else said, you can't see under trees on trails etc. But I know from experience that I've misplaced things when the shadows hid it that I would have been able to get correctly if I'd been able to get s steetview
For nominations that are on buildings, in buildings, or even ones that are buildings, it can sometimes be very tricky to locate the correct part of the building to place the marker on when the roofing all looks identical from satellite view.
I'm not saying street view would be useful in all situations when submitting, but it would be nice to have it as an extra way of making sure locations are accurate in situations where it would be useful.
