Google Mapping local government

January 25th, 2007 by Lloyd Gofton

The number of uses for Google Maps seems infinite.

Business ideas newsletter Springwise reports that one local government in Amsterdam is trialing an online tool that allows residents to pinpoint neighborhood problems on Google Maps (see above). After filling out an online form, a marker is placed on a Google map of the area, along with information on how the complaint is being dealt with.

The local government is claiming that this is motivating local maintenance crews to keep the map as empty as possible, with around 90 percent of issues being resolved within two days.

It’s nice to see local government being so social media savvy!
