Google Maps updates South Africa

Report: Google Maps is updating its information for South Africa. Over the next few weeks Google Maps will incorporate directions, local business listings and other more specified information for the country.

Until now business and street-level information on South Africa has severely lagged behind that for the USA and Europe. Limited information relating to street addresses and business locations has prevented Google from providing all of its maps services for the region.

"It's our practice with Google Maps to update the product incrementally, as new data and functionality becomes available. That's why you see varying levels of detail and local information depending on what country you look at," said Stafford Masie, country manager for Google in South Africa.
