Make Your Maps Better #MyChi

Where: Google Local Chicago, 20 W Kinzie, Chicago

Cost: FREE

Registration: Registration via Google Forms required: http://goo.gl/P9TOC

Have you ever wondered how places are added to Google Maps? Google doesn’t use magical fairies but they do have a few nifty tools, one of which is Google Map Maker — and now you can use it too.

Join the Chicago Nerds Social Club and Google Local Chicago for their first ever Community MapUp, where Googlers Aaron Babst and Amy Korin will guide you through a tour of the new Google Maps and Google Map Maker. Share your local knowledge of our city by adding the coffee shop that just opened on your corner, updating the contact information of the movie theater down the street or editing the hours of your favorite tapas bar. Help make Google Maps better, your friends and neighbors will thank you.

In addition to the MapUp, we’ll get a behind the scenes tour of the Google Chicago office and see the company’s famous fun and quirky workspaces. Food and beverages will be provided.

Advance registration is required, so be sure to RSVP using the form. All are welcome and space is limited. After you fill out the form we’ll be in touch to confirm your spot.

RSVP REQUIRED VIA FORM –>> http://goo.gl/1JFIW

Bring your laptop if you’d like but we’ll also provide computers, try to think of a few things that you can add to the map before you come so you’ll be able to get some hands on experience.

Please RSVP by Thursday, May 24. Space is limited so make sure to register now!
