What I am doing:
I am working on google maps and the application currently allows user to mark address on the map, then the application saves the coords to database.
The map currently shows the Roadmap and here is my confusion, I want the user marked place to be as accurate as possible and I think roadmaps just show the overview of a street, they may show a place in the form of blocks but I think user will not be able to figure out his/her correct place (or it will take time to figure out).
So, I wanted to ask should I use "Satellite" map or should I go with the roadmap.
I think I should go with satellite map but it looks a little bit messy for a new user who have a little experience about map. I don't want someone to skip the step of adding accurate place just because it is looking a little messy.
I am attaching this image which explains what I mean by messy:
Both the images are of same place
As you can see how cleaner and detailed roadmap view appears.
Please give me your valuable suggestion. The user age group that will access my tool will be mostly between 25 to 60 years (and I am concerned for >45 age).
Also this is my first question on UX, so please keep calm if you smell stupidity in my question.
