Google Maps is an Internet mapping service developed by Google.
It offers satellite imagery, aerial photography, street maps, interactive 360° panoramic views of roads, real-time traffic conditions, and route planning for travel on foot, by car, bike, and plane, or by public transportation.
Other related technologies commonly used with Google Maps include geocoding, which converts addresses and other location information into coordinates that can be displayed on a map, and spatial indexing, which is used to quickly and efficiently query large datasets of geographic information.
BITS experts have used Google Maps in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
