Has anyone ever told you that you have the ability to change what Google Maps looks like? Similar to the way Wikipedia works if you have a Google account you can add features/boundaries to the map and they can become part of the map and included in directions/walking directions once approved by Google! How neat is that?! Watch the video below to find out more!
Say you want to create a map to help residents navigate around town on bike safe routes. All that is required is a Google account and a steady hand to trace lines from the aerial imagery to the map. Then boom! You are a map maker!
