Google Maps API for WorkGoogle Maps API is a collection of APIs that enable you to overlay your own data on a customized Google Map.

With the world's most accurate global coverage and an active mapping community making daily updates, your users will benefit from a continually improving service.
Familiar and EasyGoogle Maps is the most widely used online mapping service in the world, with more than 800,000 sites using the Google Maps API and over 250 million active users on mobile devices alone. With the Google Maps API, you can provide this same familiar experience to your own users.
World class imageryThe global catalog of high resolution aerial imagery offered by Google Earth is also available in the Google Maps API. The Google Maps API includes access to 45 degree imagery in over 120 cities worldwide, so your users can explore your data with a unique perspective within a particular area.
Mobile firstSmartphones have revolutionized the way that we consume and share information, and catering for a mobile user base is more important than ever. With the Google Maps API you can build location based applications that can be used via a web browser, mobile devices, or custom built applications.
Advanced analyticsThe Google Maps API for Work offers an analytics tool that enables you to see how visitors interact with your maps. For example you can see how many visitors switch to satellite view, the level they zoom to, and which features of the map are most commonly used. This allows you to customize the user experience based on their preferences and encourage a higher degree of engagement and interactivity.
Routing and DirectionsThe Google Maps API delivers the full power of Google's routing engine to your applications. You can generate routes between up to 23 locations for driving, walking, or cycling. Routes can avoid toll roads or highways, and travel time can be reduced by calculating the optimal order to visit each location. Travel time and distance between locations can also be calculated, for example if you want to offer users a way to filter search results by drive time.
Data VisualizationThe Google Maps API lets you visualize data using heat maps, symbols and custom styles. For United States maps, you have access to a demographics layer containing recent census information provided by Nielsen, as well as 5-year projections of many data fields. The demographics layer is only available to Google Maps API for Work customers, and may only be used on internal websites / intranets.
