is happening this week in Dar:

The Google team is thrilled to announce our first g|Tanzania, happening February 2-3 in Dar es Salaam. We’re looking forward to engaging with this community of developers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs who are as passionate about technology as we are! 

They’ll be holding a MapUp after the main event:

A Google MapUp is an event in which a group of people get together to map their world… often a specific area such as a town or city. Avid cartographers (like you!) use Google Map Maker to add and edit roads, streams, schools, and more. Following a review for accuracy, new additions and edits are incorporated in Google Maps for millions of people around the world to see and use!

Here’s the link/invite to the MapUp, to be held at COSTECH on the 4th of Feb.

  1. Google recently entered into an agreement with the Worldbank. It is somewhat disputed, but gives very good access for contributing new data to Google from the map using community: http://www.globalintegrity.org/blog/google-world-bank-map-deal
