Campuses can customize content on Google Map Maker

April 25, 2011

Google announced last week the availability of Google Map Maker for the US. The product allows people to add to and update the map for locations around the world. The "getting started" page for Google Map Maker includes a section for "Schools and Universities," which notes that institutions can label campus buildings, mark the outlines of those facilities to see a robust campus in Google Maps, and add footpaths to help students find shortcuts around campus.
