      Get directions and find places online. Google Maps shows streets, traffic, and satellite images. Users can type in an address and get a pinpoint location or pull up driving directions. Users with a Google account can also partake in the My Maps service, which provides users with simple drag-and-drop tools to chart their own customized maps and share them with others.

      Google Maps recently launched a new feature called Street View. Using 360-degree, video-capture technology, users can explore a photograph of their local streets if they live in one of the cities that has been mapped by the service.
