The badges are nothing more then a recognition that you have done something.
No other use then that.
And the points after 500: if there are a lot of people, maybe they will add extra levels???

@Explore MUMBAI S Are you talking about the badge shown on Maps, or the badges on Local Guides Connect? The badge on Maps is basically to give recognition for Local Guides level 3 and above, to show that they've made great contribution to Google Maps. The badge in Local Guides Connect is basically a form of gamification, to recognize involvement of Local Guides in the Local Guides Connect forum.

 

As for what's after level 5, keep contributing :) Personally for me I don't care too much about the levels. All I care is that the information I provide will help me in the future, and also help others.

I think there need to upgrade  levels such as 1000, 1500. 2000,2500 etc.just for  encouragement.

I think satisfaction with the work is main gain. Number of photo viewers increasing day by day and helped by the added information gives me a satisfaction. I hope google team will evaluate our work in upcoming days beyond 500 points too. So let's not worry about this. Badges are virtual medals for our contribution.

I think so. There should be a next level or point system to encourage more.

I think after 500 points you start to get self motivated!
