Google Map Maker Recognition

Last night, when I arrived home, I was welcomed by a package from Google and it was the Google Map Maker Recognition package they sent. I was humbled and yet thrilled to have received such a recognition. I never thought that something as simple as naming important places and buildings in Google Maps would receive any recognition. Map making is actually very simple, you just need to have a Google Map Maker account. When your account is set up, you can start mapping by naming or identifying important places like hospitals, government buildings, schools, etc. You won't need to go out, walk or drive and wear breeches or bring anything special. Jus make sure that you are 100 percent sure of the location and name of what you are mapping.




In the Google Map Maker Recognition package were three items - a certificate of recognition, a sticker and a shirt from Google. This is a great addition to my online accomplishments and hope that I continue doing this to help map provinces in the Philippines.
