Google
collects latest and important data regularly in order to maintain and improve
their maps. And to have it, none of their information has stayed more than 3
years old, as the keep updating for regular use. The project happens to be an
immense scale.

Google Map Satellites
Google works
very closely to update users using their maps via satellite view. And they get
such details by getting together high-resolution photographs of the planet
gotten from the satellites.  And this
helps to locate geological changes, with new and altered buildings and many
more.

Google Map Street View

making trip on road safe and faster.  Google keeps accessing more street roads
around the planets so as to give you an easy access to drive around even where
you haven’t been before. So the take record of these various roads by snapping
a 360-degree photos on such area and then update in Google maps.

Google Map Street View
Map Partnership
You may be
asking how Google gathers such huge information on their own which the display
on Google Maps, well they actually partner with the most comprehensive and
authoritative data sources for data(s). And this is achieved through what is
called “Partner Program”. So many different agencies having information in
details, submit real data to Google for scrutiny, which they update after
examination. Most of the agencies are as follows; US National Park Service, US
Geological Survey, USDA Forest Service, various city and county councils, and
so many other agencies.


Some of the
basic sections or options you get to see in a Google map app once signed in
using your Gmail account are as follows; Your places, your timeline, your
contributions, start driving, offline areas, traffic, public transit,
Bicycling, satellite, Terrain, Google Earth etc.

With Google
map, you can check the exact time it will take you to reach to any destination
either by road driving via car, by riding bicycle, or legging as a pedestrian. It
gives you the shortest distance to your destination, providing the speed in
different S.I units eg km/hr etc.

Once you get
to pass the exact route pinpointed by the map, it reroutes again until you get
to your destination. This app is pretty amazing and educative for all to make
use of.  If you can’t type the location
or street you are or where you want to head to, may be you actually don’t know
how to spell the name of the place, you can choose to use Voice command option.
Just click the small icon present in the search section and pronounce the place
name, then it fetches the details and direction of the place for you.
