Google Map Maker Mapping Challenges

We are excited to kick off 2012 with a whole new round of competitions for mapping your world with Google Map Maker. Create and improve the maps of places you know and love, and possibly win a prize while you're at it.

Map Maker Top Contributor Recognition

We recognize our top contributors by displaying their profile names in the lower right corner on Google Map Maker. Once Map Maker contributions are transferred to Google Maps, attribution appears there as well. We've also started featuring the most impressive mappers on the Google Lat Long Blog. In another effort to show our appreciation, we'll be sending out top contributor certificates to our most active mappers.
