Demo: Google Maps Engine

View Original Video

Possible uses for Google Maps Engine:

  • Creating shareable maps collaboratively with collective info about an area - e.g. favourite restaurants or points of interest
  • Visualizing location-based data, for example:
    • Water quality values for different areas contained in a spreadsheet can be quickly imported and visualized on map
  • Plotting data from a form on a map, for example:
    • Send out a Google Form asking people to submit their favourite restaurant (or whatever) including a address and then plot those submissions onto a map!
  • Tell a location-based story using photos and videos added on to a map
