Uganda: Over 100 students of the Makerere University in Kampala took part in a digital mapping process in a Google competition. The event dubbed “mapping your world” was used to create and improve maps of places that the students know and love.
According to Google, the students used Google Map Maker, which allows you to create a map by adding or editing features to satellite images such as roads, businesses, parks, schools and more.
The internet search giant said: “During the month-long competition, students made over 7,000 edits and modifications to data for hospitals, gas stations, schools, businesses, government and utility offices, among others.”
