Have you ever tried writing a review for a new restaurant only to discover that it isn’t listed on Google Maps yet? Or maybe you’ve arrived at a store to find out that it closes an hour earlier than what it says on Google Maps? Accurate information on Google Maps is what allows everyone to effectively navigate and explore the world around them. Place locations and information — like business hours, website and phone number — are important and Local Guides help us to improve the accuracy of this information on a daily basis.
Map Your World Week (March 13-19) is a chance for you to rally Local Guides in your area to improve the accuracy of Maps and build your community along the way. There are plenty of ways to get involved:
Organize or join a geo walk to explore your city on foot and make sure businesses are listed accurately in Google Maps.
Stay indoors and organize or join a map editing meet-up to look for missing places or to update information for existing places.
Use our new Missions feature (available for Local Guides on Android) to find nearby places that are missing important information.
