Members can add roads, stores, services

The company, in partnership with the National Congress of American Indians, is making today its first-ever Indigenous Mapping Day.
Participants must have a Google account to edit or add to maps represented on the popular Google Maps and Google Earth. Participants also must be affiliated with the tribe whose community they plan to map.
Many U.S. tribal communities lack accurate mapping of roads, buildings and other services available to tribal members or the general public, said Sarah Beccio, a spokeswoman for the National Congress of American Indians.
