Google has announced the launch of Google Maps in Ghana and 29 other African countries. Relying largely on crowdsourcing and the MapMaker tool, the maps includes searching for towns, highways, and roads. Finding local businesses is now readily available to African Internet users, extending to mobile as well.

The Google Africa Blog further explains:

This could be a burger place in Lagos, a garage in Kampala, a hairdresser in Accra or an airport shuttle in Dakar. Any business anywhere can add their own business listing for free via the Google Maps Local Business Centre. Businesses can also improve their websites and help customers locate them by installing the Maps API.
