Maps in the mail

Over the last couple days, I received tourist maps in the mail from GVB (Guam) and MVA (Saipan, Tinian, and Rota). Some interesting and helpful info was included, so I think I will be able to make more headway on the Google Mapmaker project.

Google Street View?

I guess Google Mapmaker has been out since 2008... I only discovered it yesterday. Some folks in India and the Philippines have been adding streets and landmarks to the Saipan map, and since yesterday I have been updating street names using Maui Business Pages' 2000 Saipan directory as a general guide.

Below are some pictures of my progress using a residential area in Koblerville:


I have also corrected some roads and added other information. It takes a little while for the info to go live on Google Maps, but once that happens all 2 of my blog readers will be the first to know.
