- The development of geographic information science so rapidly both conceptually, applications and related technologies in the field. To support the study of geography, the Geographic Information (GI) is important in order to study geosphere. The existence of geographic information services (crowdsourcing mapping) such as Google Maps, Bing Maps, Here Maps, and also OpenStreetMaps. The quality of spatial data from geographic information listed there needs to be studied further. In the other hand, village as the smallest administrative unit autonomy need to map. Characteristics of the village needs to be studied, one of which may be through mapping and study geographical names in there. Especially with the village fund which the amounts consider aspects of population, poverty, area and geographical difficulty level where the information can be presented in the village maps. Based on this background, this study aims comparing geographic information services in order to support rural mapping and toponym inventory. The existing geographic services (crowdsourcing mapping) is compared by its features, both point, linear and also polygon features. We also compare the system features. Based on the result show that Google Map offers highly supports the rural mapping and contains more geographical names than the others. The facility/ add-on features in Google Maps also become benefit than the others. In the other hand, OpenStreetMaps show promising for crowdsourcing mapping. The user could invite the other people to map the area together.
