Pakistan: Enriching Google Map Data

Pro Pakistani informs that “Pakistani netizens are posting more localized information and data to the Google’s ‘map maker’ than the web users of any of the 160 countries”.


  • Pakistanis are more net crazy and this craziness is rising and i am seeing south Koreans will be left behind soon …. Geographical Map posting is one such thing …. and this shows Pakistanis awareness and the the benefits we can all have …. I would like to congratulate all …

    Kindly Plz correct the Map of Pakistan & India … in which kashmir is shown as Indian Part However its not the case … Kashmir is a disputed territory and Kashmir should be shown as Disputed Territory …

    This is my request to the Forum Owner..

    It will hurt Pakistanis Feelings.

  • Hello Momin Ansari,

    Respectfully, we are aware that Kashmir is a disputed territory but the map we use is made by a third party. It is inevitable that some feelings will be hurt no matter which we representation of the world we use. Sorry about that.
