Visualize the world with rich, accurate maps
Help a traveler to give a streetview image of the B&B he found on the internet. Or give your users a live view on a map of where the deliverer is with their food. Google gives endless possibilities to show users information on a static or a dynamic map. Street View and high resolution satellite imagery allow you to create more engaging experiences with additional detail. Google Maps has over 25 million updates from over 1,000 sources every day! This will make sure that your map is always up-to-date.
Google Maps can be used in two ways, static or dynamic. A static map can be used to only show where a certain location is without giving the user the possibility to zoom in or out or click on the map. The dynamic map is used the most and is familiar with almost every one, as Google Maps has 1 billion monthly active users. This way of using the Google Map gives the users a more interactive experience where they can zoom, pan and get additional information shown on the map. Besides static and dynamic it is also possible to show your location at 45°.
We all know Street View to get familiar with the area we are planning to visit. This can also be used in your own application or website to for example give a view of all your stores, or walk through the neighborhood of your new dreamhouse. Activ84Health uses Street View to re-explore the world through cycling with Street View to keep persons with a restriction physically and cognitively active.
Not known with all of the users is that you can customize your Google Maps. Give users the experience of a real Google Map, with his rich data but show your store locations with custom colors and elements. With customize maps you are able to show a Google Map in your own brand colors, see example of Coca Cola below. Do you have a lot of location pins on your map and isn’t the view clear and user friendly anymore? To solve this issue you can make use of Marker Clustering. Combine markers of close proximity into clusters and simplify the display of markers on the map. This and many more features gives endless possibilities to style and customize your Google Maps experience!
