Google have added 45 African countries to Map Maker. Map Maker is a service that allows anyone to add map information to areas that currently have poor map data in Google Maps.
This addition should greatly improve Google Maps in Africa, which is great news. Hopefully many more areas will soon have as much map detail as Nairobi, Kenya, where Google MapMaker has been working on a project in partnership with a team of seven students from three Kenyan universities to improve the area's Google Map data.
