What is Google Maps?
Google Maps is a consumer application and web mapping platform developed by Google. Satellite imagery, aerial photos, street maps, 360° interactive panoramic views of streets, real-time traffic conditions, and route planning for walking, driving, biking, flying, and taking public transportation are all available.
The History of Google Maps
It was originally intended to be downloaded separately by users, but the company later approached Google management with the idea of a totally Web-based product, modifying the distribution method. Google Inc. bought the company in October 2004 and turned it into the web application Google Maps.
