Since I discovered Google Map Maker, I have contributed to make some locations I’m familiar with to appear on Google Maps. It’s an amazing experience and I’m happy people could find some of those places online.
Mapping United Methodist Church Locations on Google Maps
After realizing that local churches of the United Methodist Church in Cote d’Ivoire could not be (easily) found online (as it’s the case with many churches in the USA), I have voluntarily embarked on the project to add to Google Maps every parish that I will come across on the Ivorian territory. You can view the map here.
How long will the mapping last for?
This is a project I run during my free time. I don’t have a specific date to terminate it. Since I’m a member of the United Methodist Church Missionary District of Abengourou (east of Cote d’Ivoire), I will focus on having the 28 local churches found in the District. However, I would love to have as many local churches nationwide mapped by the end of 2014.
You can contribute to the project.
Mapping churches nationwide can be intricate. So I welcome contributors to participate on the project so as to make it easy to find maps local United Methodist (UM) churches online. You can contribute by:
- Dropping the GPS coordinates of a church you know as comment to this post (name of church + GPS information)
- Dropping Google Maps links of localities where local UM churches are found.
With time, I will make available other ways to contribute to this project. Check out the map here.
Wish me luck 😉
