We all know that mapping the world is not easy. Google has done a great job in developed countries but collaborating with the authorities. However, for developing countries like India, where establishments and points of interests change as frequently as every 6 months, it is difficult to just rely on the government authorities to provide accurate up to date data.
In an effort to enhance the Google Maps data for India, Google India is running a Mapathon where anyone with a Google account can improve the Google maps data for their neighborhood or places they are familiar with. Google India is also offering attractive prizes for people like 10 Samsung Galaxy Note 800 Android Tablets, 40 Samsung Galaxy S II GT I9100 Android Phones, 50 Flipkart gift coupons worth Rs. 5000 each and 1000 Google Mapathon 2013 t-shirts and certificates (includes the top 100 above and another 900 people).
