Map Maker Now Available for 77 Countries

Google Map Maker, which allows users to contribute and edit Maps data for regions around the world, is now available in 77 countries.

The vaes9 blog contacted me today to say that they had noticed Map Maker was now available for the Philippines. I checked Google's Countries Editable in Google Map Maker page and it seems that Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan have all been recently added to the list.

If you live in any of those countries you can now get mapping at Google Map Maker.

The Google Lat Long blog has confirmed today that Map Maker has been extended to the seventeen countries named above and have created this cool time lapse movie of mapping activity in Nicosia, Cyprus:
