Pakistan is now on google maps

Posted by nabeel on May 27, 2009

google maps

Have you ever had to ask ten different guys on the street for directions, out of which at least eight led you in the wrong direction with full confidence?

Well now you can look up where you are going at google maps before you set off. And better still you can also look up google maps on your cellular phone. For that you can go to m.google.com/maps on your mobile and install the google maps application. The best  feature in this mobile application is that even if your phone does not have GPS, it can tell your current location within a range of a couple of kilometers at max using your cellular network (not magic).

The rest of the world has had this facility for ages but Pakistan has only recently been included in the google maps database. The road map of Pakistan was developed completely by volunteers in an amazingly short period of time. You can also contibute in this map by adding places. If you want to contribute go to http://www.google.com/mapmaker. You can also use the ‘get directions’ feature on google mapmaker which is not yet available on google maps for Pakistan.
