Here’s a cool new development from Google, which allows users to contribute to their map service! Google Map Maker allows users to add local information such as building outlines, hiking trials, rivers, railways and more to Google Maps.
According to Map Maker program manager Jessica Pfund, users can edit and update anything from historic buildings and streets to agricultural land, the Independent reports.
Contributions made through the browser-based map editor will be reviewed by other users and Google staff, in a system similar to Wikipedia.
Once approved, map amendments will appear on Google Maps, Google Earth and the Maps mobile app.
Have a play! http://www.google.com/mapmaker
