Mapping using Google MapMaker

I have always been thankful to Google Maps. It has been a great help for me since the time I first used it. Now, it is time to pay back by contributing in Google Map Maker.

I tried using Google Map Maker yesterday and mapped some schools. Actually, I mapped these schools as part of Google's Find Your Precint, an ongoing effort to map precincts/voting centers. I only had mapped a few locations. I hoped to map my Alma Mater Elementay school as the first to map. However, it has already been mapped so I chose the school nearest and it has became my first published contribution to Google Maps.

I am hoping I can help even more by mapping more locations starting today. I just wish I will have more spare time for it.
