photo(3)  Many thanks to the lovely Google Local London team who hosted us at the Google office in Holborn for a fabulous Mapmaker event on Tuesday 11th June 2013.

An eager group of Girl Geeks descended on the office to learn more about Mapmaker and how to contribute and edit Google maps through an informative and fun presentation, where we were introduced to thinking about why we might want to benefit our communities through enriching Google Maps.

We had plenty of questions for the team and had a good evening editing and chatting.  If you haven’t tried Mapmaker yet, have a go for yourself and if you’re not sure how to get started, there’s plenty of help available on the YouTube channel.

If you’re on Google Plus, why not follow Google Local London or follow them on twitter?

However, the fantastic Google Local London team also reminded us about reviewing places and even some of the more private amongst us seemed enthusiastic about the possibilities and uses of reviews.  For further information, have a look at the help pages!

Many thanks to Google for hosting us.  We had a fabulous evening of learning and networking and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

It was great to see a lovely group of Girl Geeks at Google and we’re looking forward to seeing you at RegentTweet this month!  Don’t forget that our birthday will be in August – hope to see many of you there!
