Last week, Google revealed that the Google Map Maker online tool will now be back up and running after some vandalism three months ago where someone put a Android figure urinating on a Apple logo. The re-launch started last week in a number of countries getting access including Bangladesh, Canada, India, the Ukraine and the Philippines. As well as relaunching the service, Google is also making sure that this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.
To combat the Map Maker vandalism, Google is now allowing regional leaders to update the submissions in that specific area as well as the existing automated system. Over the next few weeks Map Maker will be coming to more countries.
