Google has launched its Map Maker service in India. Google Map Maker, conceived and developed by the Indian engineering team, allows users to add or edit features, such as roads, businesses, parks, schools, apartment buildings and localities and also to add detailed information about these locations.

Understanding that people know their neighbourhoods best, Google Map Maker empowers this user-expertise to improve the breadth and depth of available mapping data. The product also introduces peer moderation allowing users to review the data their peers have entered to ensure map quality and accuracy, Google has said.

According to the company, Google Map Maker can help bolster commerce by enabling people to map local businesses from their regions. Similarly, NGOs can benefit from it by effectively mapping challenging belts in the rural and sub-urban areas.

“Google Map Maker solves an inherent need especially for countries such as ours where maps data is sparse. This product embodies our passion to empower people everywhere, to share knowledge of the places they know best by creating maps,” Lalitesh Katragadda, software engineer and creator of Google Map Maker, has said.

“This is a great achievement for our engineering team,” Prasad Ram, head of Google R&D in India, has said. “This launch is the reinforcement of our commitment to bring more useful information to people around the world and especially in hyper-growth countries like India where maps are changing on a daily basis given the rapid pace of infrastructure development.”
