Map Banani - 17th GBG Dhaka Meetup


Published on

As part of GBG's efforts to support local small businesses in Dhaka, we are starting a project to get all the business on Banani Road 11 added to Google Maps.

We'll send teams out on to Road 11 to visit businesses and collect their maps listing information, such as address, phone number, website & more! We'll then add all this information to Google Maps so the business can easily be found by anyone searching the map.
