Google Maps is a web mapping service by Google that provides satellite imagery, aerial photography, street maps, 360° interactive panoramic views of streets (Street View), real-time traffic conditions, and route planning for anyone traveling by foot, public transport, car, bicycle, and air.

This year, Google Maps has been used by more than one billion people every month, following the lead of other popular services from Google like YouTube, Chrome, Gmail, Search, and Google Play. Recall that its launch was first announced on the Google Blog on February 8, 2005, Google Maps has surely taken the world by storm since then.

Google recently entered a partnership with 800 public transportation providers all across the globe to adopt General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), making the data available to 3rd parties. The platform also has a theme for navigation mode for users in line with present trends.
