I was looking for a city map of Goa. Nobody had one, not even the government’s official site. Then I chanced upon
The results for Goa were impressive. Considering that the whole postal addressing scheme in 99% of urban and rural India is very non-uniform, it would be a challenge to map addresses like “Opp. Roxy Cinema”, “Upper Ground Floor”, and “Next to Shopper’s Stop” 🙂
However, they have a long way to go — I tried mapping the route from Mumbai Central Station to the McDonald’s in Colaba, which failed. I think the success factor is simple — navigable level 1 maps of the 27 major cities in India.
