TPL Maps recently launched Pakistan’s first digital mapping competition named “Map My Pakistan.”

The six-week long competition saw thousands of app users marking out places that they often visit: ranging from schools to their favourite restaurants.

Top five winners of the competition were awarded Samsung smartphones according to a press release.

The company is encouraging more users to add locations on the online map helping  the “team achieve their objective of over 10 million ‘Point of Interests’ mapped on the country’s navigation app.”

“Map My Pakistan is not only a hashtag trend, it defines who we are. Our vision is to comprehensively map every nook and corner of Pakistan and we have invested a lot of time and resources in executing this task,” according to Adeel Hashmi, Head of TPL Maps.

Hashmi went on to say that “the digital map will substantially pave the way for e-commerce rise, as it will also assist new startups in the country.”
