You may have seen Google’s ongoing efforts to improve the overall look, feel, and usability across its range of products in recent months. Today, Google has announced another product makeover with a new version of Google Map Maker to “help users map the places they know best and make their hometowns sparkle on Google Maps.”
“With Map Maker, you can easily help ensure that the changing world around you is accurately reflected on the map. Add your favorite gift shop, the nearest tree farm, or even the golf course where you once got that hole in one. It’s also easier to mark the best route to Grandma’s house and draw better buildings with courtyards and crisper corners. The options are endless when it comes to mapping the places you know and love. Once approved, your contributions will appear on Google Maps, Google Earth and Google Maps for mobile for all the world to see.”
F**k it, we'll do it live!
