Hello,

First I would like to thank you all for the great efforts.

I saw that the people worked a lot on Syrian cities (Capital city and
other), and there are roads almost every where. So I was wondering
when can we expect the map will be available in Google Map mobile?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Hazz,
Thanks for your interest in seeing Map Maker data on Google Maps
mobile.
Google Map Maker data for Syria has not been published on Google
Maps. Publishing depends on the content available for a country. The
richer the content on Map Maker, the higher the probability of it
getting published on Maps. This is the list of countries whose data
from Map Maker has been updated on Google Maps:

Nevertheless, you can view the Map Maker data on Google Maps using
this mapplet: http://maps.google.com/maps/mpl?moduleurl=http://www.google.com/mapmaker/mapfiles/s/mapplet.xml

Regards,
Map Maker Guide.

Thank you for your reply.

I hope that our map will be published soon as well.

My city (Damascus, Syria) and the other main cities has all the future
ready as I saw. Roads I mean.

What can we do to make the Map publishing faster?

Thanks for the great feature.

Hi,
Comprehensiveness and exhaustive details are key features to speed
up the publishing of Maps. The richer the content on Map Maker, the
higher the probability of it getting published on Google Maps. You can
contribute to the process by adding features like schools, hospitals,
roads, other POIs, etc. :)

Regards,
Map Maker Guide.

Thank you so much for the great support! I see the map is now really
live on Google Maps :)!!!

I checked the Maps using Google Maps application on my Nokia E72
mobile and it is still showing the old map! So when can we expect it
to be available on the mobile as well ?

I'm so happy and excited to see the edits live :)!

Thanks for the great efforts guys.

Hi,
Indeed, the updates to Google Maps for mobile take a bit longer than
Google Earth & Maps. We are however, working on minimizing the delay.

Hi Hazz,
We (the small-but-growing SyriaConnect.com community), are trying to establish a taskforce to improve the mapping of Syria online, and get changes to be published quicker. We'd love you to join and perhaps we can get your experience and help!

Here's some information about it: http://www.syriaconnect.com/el/mod/groups/topicposts.php?topic=5812&group_guid=2800

Kind Regards,
Hichame
