GBG Phnom Penh’s Map Up event is back for seconds! It will be happening on the 11th of October 2014 (Saturday) from 2:00PM to 5:00PM at Development Innovations. If you want to know what happened at the first GBG Phnom Penh Geowalk and Map Up Event, visit here.
Map Up was created to improve the quality of local information available on Google Maps for the country. During the first event, participants filled Maps up with essential details that can help people find places easier – be it for tourism or business.
This time, participants will focus on mapping the local business information, to help businesses in the area by editing their information on Maps. This is to ensure that local users will be able to look for what they need.
During Map Up, Mr. Sovichea Cheth, Regional Expert Reviewer, Google MapMakers, will be reviewing Phnom Penh maps, and teaching participants how to map a local business. Participants will also be visiting businesses in Phnom Penh to collect information for mapping.
If you are attending the event, bring along a digital camera or smartphone (with camera) to add more pictures to Maps. Also, bring your laptop for mapping (WiFI will be available at the event).
