Google Map Maker

Last week I covered OSM, the Open Source mapping program. Ironically just after I posted that Google announced their own spin on the situation: Mapmaker. Mapmaker is a user edited mapping program powered by the all great, Google Maps. Google have just announced that they are expanding to more countries including Australia over the next few weeks. They are also releasing an android version with OFFLINE MAPPING. This is great for Geocaching. I think I may just switch to Mapmaker over OSM since I prefer Google's layout of places.
I love this new concept and hope it will do as well as the OSM project.
