Google wants to leverage on the power of crowd sources to improve its Maps applications. This was announced on Thursday in a post in which will allow people share locations more and even edit street names because as you know as I do, the world is only a small village on the internet and maybe trade but definitely not geographically. Well, street names change sometimes and you may have witnessed this yourself. It’s also going to allow users share details about a location as well.
To check if what others are editing and sharing are authentic, there’s also the feature that allows the community verify edits by others.
Google Maps now has billions of users who rely on it for directions and this feature is already open to all but if you don’t see it yet, you will soon.
