I used to be more active in mapmaker, but unfortunately that service will be shout down in 2017.
i wonder if mapmaker features will be added to this local guides platform.

i use mapmaker mainly for road editing and for desktop use. it has a better overview and more option for editing.
and beside the beta features of google maps on android are not available on desktop website
why is that ?

@SampsonF - They are very similar. Geo walks you go around an area to contribute to Google Maps. In Map-ups you don't necessarily need to walk around, you get together with people in a space and start mapping your area (drawing road on MM, editing/adding places, etc.)
