Google opened the map of Canada in Google Map Maker to let users add their expert local knowledge directly to Google Maps. “Users can help make the map complete in many ways such as marking hiking paths and trails, fixing the name of a local business, or adding the buildings of a college campus so they appear in Google Maps,” stated Google.
Adding, Google said, “Citizen cartographers using Google Map Makerin more than 180 other regions of the world help keep maps of their areas accurate and up to date.
Users know their neighborhood or hometown best, and with Google Map Maker they can ensure the places they care about are richly represented on the map.”
