Google has rolled out a new update to its Google Map Maker service which is now available in the United States, Canada, and more than 180 other regions. The new update comes as part of Google wider redesign of all its services to make them more intuitive and cleaner to use.
The new version of Google Map Maker has been designed to make it even easier for users to make their hometowns “sparkle on Google maps” says Google. Watch the demonstration video after the jump to see it in action.
Kaushik Sridharan, a Software Engineer at Google explains:
“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.”
