Google India Announces Mapathon 2013 : Registrations Open

Google India has announced Mapathon 2013 – It’s way of inviting you the user, to improve maps for India and make them better. In an official statement from its India Blog, Google has announced its first ever mapping competition – Mapathon 2013: Indian Edition.

Mapathon 2013

It starts on February 12 and culminates on March 25, 2013 and is an India-wide   mapping contest open to just about anybody who lives in India. Google says that users would add intricate details about their neigborhoods and this addition would help in making their maps better in the long run. Users would use Google Map Maker in the process and there’s a reward for them too!

The Reward -

The top 1000 mappers in India stand a chance to win Android tablets, smartphones, gift vouchers and Google merchandise. Sounds incredible! Wanna register? Then head over to and get mapping!
Google says that the competition is a way of crowdsourcing to get the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps of the country. So how does it all work? Google Map Maker is an easy-to-use tool that allows users to add more detail to Google Maps through a few simple clicks.

As Jayanth Mysore, Senior Product Manager for Map Maker posts in the blog -
 Here at Google, it has always been our endeavour to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. One way we hope to achieve this is by mapping the world, and what better way to do so than by asking users to help ensure that Google Maps accurately reflects the world around them. To provide better maps for India, we need to build maps for the users, by the users.
Its all very easy as you can see in the pic below- Just go to the Google Map Maker and simply update details of places already on Maps. So add that snack joint you love so much or provide important details about a hospital or nursing home near you which might help someone looking for it frantically!

Just remember the registrations begin on  February 12 and end on March 25, 2013.
Go save the world! And yes – Happy Mapping!
