Google Maps is a fantastic resource, but it certainly isn’t perfect. Just as it promised back in June, Google has introduced its Map Maker option to Australia, which lets individual users flag mistakes and add extra information such as walking trails.
Maps already has an option to flag incorrect information (right-click on a map and choose ‘Report a problem’ ), but Map Maker lets you actually sketch in new details such as roads and paths. Contributions have to go through an approval process, but this should still improve detail for walkers and cyclists (who also got a recent boost with cycling directions on maps).
