How Google Maps is celebrating the Asian Games


For the first time since 1962, the Asian Games are being held in Indonesia. Thousands of athletes from nations across Asia have traveled to Jakarta and Palembang to compete. Local Guides like you are sharing your excitement about the Asian Games on Connect, so here are more ways you can get in on the action using Google Maps.

Atung, one of the friendly Asian Games mascots, will help you find the best route on Maps when you search for directions in Jakarta and Palembang. Just start navigation and opt into this special feature by tapping GO FOR GOLD when the notification pops up. Then, Atung will lead the way!


Use indoor maps to find your seat in the stadium

Spend less time trying to find your way and more time enjoying the competition by using indoor maps of event venues throughout the games. Simply zoom in on a venue to see the indoor floor plan. You’ll also be able to search within the venue once you’re fully zoomed in.

Does road network of Indonesia updated on the Google Maps? It would be very sad if people can see beautiful staduim on Maps, but Google's directions lead to nowhere...

In Poland new freeways are added to GMaps after 2-3 months. Local roads need a lot of time, too. I never know should I report lack of road every day to speed up the drawing process or do it only one time (and to be uncertain whether this road will ever be on maps or not)...

Two years after closing Map Maker there is still no working tool to add missing road to GMaps.

It's a good idea to make people at very closer on most amazing moments inside the stadium and keep the community up to date with traffic control road situation and get quick direction to lead a specific place
