Google gives travel industry a boost with launch of Gallery system
Google has created a system to allow third parties to place data (be it an interactive map or a static image map) on Google Maps and make it accessible to a larger audience.
The project – Google Maps Gallery – enables organizations to share data on a map to be publicly discovered by people using Google Maps, Google Earth and search engines.
“Maps Gallery works like an interactive, digital atlas. You can explore historic city plans, climate trends, housing affordability, shipwrecks and up-to-date evacuation routes.
