Google Map Maker

I just ran across this tonight and thought some of you returned missionaries and others with interest might jump on to this volunteer project - Google Map Maker. Google has opened up certain areas and regions of the world, typically "third-world" to volunteers to collaborate to develop maps which can be later added to Google Maps. You can add lines (roads), features, points of interest, neighborhoods, etc... Since the new beta meetinghouse locator uses Google Maps as one platform for map data, this would be a great way to further the third-party work to map the world which the Church could use later on to help us find members and lost sheep. Just a thought!
