Our ability to explore maps relies on having access to quality data. Much of our world has yet to have access to accurate digital mapping data. This is why we originally created Google Map Maker, and why we're excited today to announce 19 new countries and territories to that have made the leap from being drawn on Google Map Maker to being pushed on Google Maps:
Algeria, Angola, Congo, Faroe Islands, French Guiana, Guyana, Haiti, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Morocco, Namibia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Suriname, Swaziland, Tunisia, Turks and Caicos Islands, Western Sahara
as well as 11 that were added in July:
Bahamas, Bermuda, British Indian Ocean Territory, Fiji, Greenland, Laos, Mali, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Pitcairn Islands, Saint Helena

Almaty, Kazakhstan

Paramaribo, Suriname

Georgetown, Guyana

Noumea, New Caledonia

Thanks to all of the wonderful Map Maker contributors. We hope more of you will join us in mapping your world. Here's a full list of Map Maker countries now on Maps.
