We're pleased to announce the launch of Google Map Maker for 43 new countries and territories, including our Oceania neighbours in Fiji, Palau and Midway. Map Maker now allows people to create complete maps for most of Oceania, from Papua New Guinea to Samoa and Micronesia, bringing the total to 164 countries across the world. 

Map Maker is all about making local data rich, complete and vibrant. Just take a look at how our users transformed the map of Da Lat, Vietnam in this time lapse video.

We hope that one day, people around the world will have access to high quality maps of their home country, whether that be here in Australia or thousands of kilometres away in Vanuatu. If you want to help by sharing your local knowledge about a favourite destination in Oceania (or anywhere else), go to mapmaker.google.com and start mapping.
