Google Apps Update - Google Maps



Posted: 01 Jul 2015 10:25 AM PDT
Google My Maps makes it simple to create, share, and publish custom maps online for a variety of business purposes—from publicizing a company’s location to mapping delivery routes and planning events. Now integrated with Google Drive, My Maps allows anyone to easily create maps with custom lines, shapes, and placemarks, to import geographic data (like addresses, places, and coordinates) into maps, and to share maps as they do other Drive files. Shared maps are subject to the same permission settings as other Drive files, allowing Apps admins to decide which groups of employees can share maps within or outside of their domains.



Google Apps admins can turn the My Maps service on or off for their entire domains or specific OUs from within the Admin console (under Apps > Additional Google services). Note that these maps are only available on the web; they can’t be accessed offline and can’t be synced to an individual’s hard drive. As with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files, maps do not count toward one’s Google Drive storage limit. Check out the Help Center links below for more information.
