Google Maps adds data for a slew of new countries

Posted by mappery on September 14, 2007

Today Google Maps rolled out new data for 54 countries that previously came up mostly blank. This is great news for mappery users interested in international maps as it will be easier to find, browse, and add maps by using nearby streets and town names as points of reference. Google notes that some coverage is still spotty (like Bermuda for example) but that improvements are in the future. I also noticed that some of the higher zoom levels have some new fonts and markers for towns (the size of the marker corresponds to the size of the city). Looks a bit better. If the past is any guide, I’d say Google will keep on rolling out new and better map info until the entire world is covered.

The countries include (click links to see mappery maps there): Afghanistan, Aruba, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belize, Bermuda, Brunei Darussalam, Bhutan, Bolivia, Cambodia, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Mexico, Myanmar (Burma), Mongolia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Timor-Leste, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam, Yemen.
