Google Map Maker

Google Map Maker (stylized Google map maker) is a service launched by Google in June 2008, designed to expand the breadth of the service currently offered by Google Maps. In some countries mapping data is unavailable, and so to fill this void Google has decided to open up Google Maps to a collaborative community effort in certain territories. The ultimate goal of the project is to acquire sufficient high-quality mapping data to be published and used on the existing Google Maps service. Some contributions have begun to appear on Google Maps, but Google Map Maker is a separate service from Google Maps, and Maps does not necessarily adopt the changes made to Map Maker and may take a long time to adopt the ones that it does.

    A cry of bitter dead men who will never
    Attend a gentle maker of musical joy.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.
