Google Map, Thailand

Yes, I have predicted this will happen soon. Yes, I am still dumbstruck. The whole of Thailand… is now covered by Google Map. The implications are multi-fold:

  • Location based web services can build on top of the platform.
  • Geo-tagging things locally now makes a whole of sense.
  • Peoples will start creating their My Map and entering places and businesses. Google will gradually make the ones that are public visible to all. Local business search will then be possible. 
  • Location based ads will start generating revenue for Google.

I think some peoples will not like that the whole thing is in Thai, but eventually the mass that will drive revenue will be the locals and not expats.
