Google India Invites Cricket Fans to Map ICC World Cup Venues | Mana Blog... for all
Feb 3, 2011

Google India Blog has called for volunteers to help them in mapping all the 13 venues of ICC cricket world cup 2011. By mapping, they mean to mark stadiums, important roads leading to venue and other area in vicinity that will be useful like waterholes, hospitals and police stations.

For Mapping, you have to use Google Map Marker, a tool which allows people to label any region on Google Maps. Here is a sample image of Vidarbha Cricket Association stadium in Nagpur:
According to Google India Blog,
Many cricket fans will be visiting these stadiums for the first time, most of them would not have visited your city prior to this. As a true-blue cricket fan and as a connoisseur of your city, it would be great if you could map out the layout of the stadium including
  • Each stand in the stadium,
  • Parking lots in and around the stadium,
  • Nearby areas of interest, etc.
So, if you are a cricket crazy or Google fan and wanted to help tourists or first-time visitors, then start marking on Google Map Maker. You can also collaborate with others via this Map Your World Community.
