Google Map has added no fewer than 1,000 new addresses to Ikeja, Ikoyi and other areas of Lagos State.
The Chief Executive Officer, Google, Sundar Pitchai, stated this on Thursday in Lagos at the ‘Google for Nigeria’ event.
He said that the company made the additions because the number of people using Google Map in Nigeria had doubled in the past one year.
He explained that the second batch of additions was to buildings, adding, “Google added detailed outlines of more than a million buildings in commercial and residential areas, and more than 100,000 additional Nigerian small businesses on Google Maps.
“This building footprint will help users get a better understanding of the world around them.
Pitchai said that Google had added more than 100,000 small businesses across leading cities in Nigeria, like Abuja and Lagos “to help improve local search experience significantly.”
