Google Maps is the quintessential online map – an excellent tool to find any location in the world, obtain directions to go from one place to another and walk around the most important cities as if you were right there.

With Google Maps you have the entire world at your fingertips. You can drag the map to move from country to country, and use the mousewheel to zoom in until you can literally see street signs. Or you can use Street View – the little yellow man on the left of the map – to move along the streets of many of the world's cities, thanks to millions of pictures taken by Google and used in Google Maps to create panoramic maps.

But Google Maps is not just maps. The app includes other features that make it more useful, such as tools to calculate directions between two points and obtain more information about any location, thanks to the use of photos, webcams and Wikipedia articles.

Google Maps can be used without a Google account, but if you have one and log in to Google, you’ll be able to overlay extra data like weather information or traffic maps, mark your favorite places on the map, and share personalized, annotated maps with family and friends.

Google Maps is a wonderful online world map where you can find any location, get directions and walk around the most important cities in the world.
