Google Maps

Google Maps | Google | JavaScript | AJAX
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.

Google Maps uses JavaScript and AJAX to dynamically display maps on web pages, and can be used on both desktop and mobile devices. In addition, Google Maps provides APIs that allow developers to add maps to their own websites and applications.

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.
