Google Maps is hosting Map Your World events for active Local Guides in 9 cities across 4 continents. Local Guides are passionate contributors who add their local tips and and insider knowledge about their communities and neighborhoods to Google Maps. At these events, Local Guides will be invited to come together to connect with other passionate Local Guides in their communities and learn more ways to share their favorite places and hidden local gems with the world through Google Maps.
Google will be hosting Local Guides in 9 cities including Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mexico City, Mexico and Lagos, Nigeria for Map Your World events:
In Lagos, top contributing Local Guides will participate in a map editing event where they’ll learn about new map editing features in Google Maps and work together to add missing places and edit information about existing places. They’ll be focused on mapping different themes, including hospitals, police stations, community centers, etc. in partnership with local NGO Stand to End Rape (STER).
Anyone can sign up to be a Local Guide and start adding local insights to Google Maps online at g.co/localguides. There are five ways to contribute: adding a place, editing info about a place, answering local questions, writing a review or adding a photo.
