Google Opened Mapmaker for Pakistan

google-mapmaker

Google Map Maker is a tool which is based on Google Maps. With the help Google Map Maker, you can easily add or edit places, road, hospitals, businesses, parks, schools, community centers and even your home sweet home.

Google Maps does not have street level information about landmarks of many countries like Vietnam, Cyprus, Iceland and Pakistan, so they launched Map Maker to get street level information from above listed countries. Information posted on Map Maker is viewable and editable by other viewers as well.

Now that Google has opened the map maker to Pakistan, so we should build the map of Pakistan with this tool. We should spread the word around and add as much features and try to make it as much comprehensive as we can to complete the map of OUR PAKISTAN. I think we should learn from our neighboring countries like Iran and India as their maps are very comprehensive.

If we want full maps of our lovely country Pakistan on our mobile phone, an Android Application, location based services or GPS Devices, we should contribute to it as much as we can do. No individual or a group of people can make it happen, its a collective effort and a team work.

Use your Google account to contribute to this service at google.com/mapmaker and help google to serve us better.

    Hello Shafiq!

    I definitly agree with you that we should add maps of our cities to google map maker in order to digitalize the Pakistan. If Google has opened their service to Pakistan, we should get benifits from it.
