Map Creator Nokia

Map Creator Nokia
Similar to Google Maps Creator, Nokia are wanting neo-cartographers to help find in the gaps to NAVTEQ data.

Limited to only 11 previously unmapped countries including: Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tanzania, Angola, Burundi, Sri Lanka, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda, and Grenada. (compared to Google Map Maker has 188 countries listed currently)

"Already lets you draw streets and footpaths. You can also name new streets and add key information such as driving directions, vehicle type characteristics or paving type. But that’s just the start! You will soon also be able to add even more types of map content such as parks, forests, lakes and rivers. In short, all the types of content you are familiar with seeing in Nokia Maps."

Note: Though read the terms and conditions - want to use this data yourself? no chance Nokia reserve the right to include or exclude data.

So you might be better contributing to Open Street Map if you wan to have access to your own submitted data and access to raster and vector data create by many thousands of other mappers. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main_Page
