Abby from the Google Maps team posted in the Google Maps Help forum asking Google Maps users who are interested in custom maps to sign up for a research study.
Abby said if you use My Maps and Maps Engine Lite you may be interested in learning about a user study program Google is offering. The goal for Google is to get qualified feedback on Google Custom Maps.
If you use Google Maps and are interested in creating custom maps with My Maps and Maps Engine Lite, you may be interested in taking part in our user studies! If you think you’d be interested in participating, please fill out this form.
The information you submit in the form is only used to compile a list of potential contacts for user studies. Your information will not be used for any other purpose, nor will you receive any emails unrelated to participation in a study.
Here is a link to the form.
