Why do we need to be Local Guide?
As we know our Earth is very big. It is not possible for map makers to map each and every part of the Earth. Even if a man tries to map each and every part of his country then he will lose his life before he could complete it. So for its solution , we are here. We can contribute the knowledge about the places we are familiar. We can rate, review, add missing places, add photos, check facts etc. to contribute. For the contribution we did , we get certain points and get benefits.
