- Surface unique insights with greater context by visualizing your data on a Google map. The Google Maps API for Work offers an analytics tool that enables you to see how visitors interact with your maps.

This allows you to customize the user experience based on their preferences and encourage a higher degree of engagement and interactivity.
- Increase efficiency through asset tracking and optimization. With the Google Maps API, you can build powerful applications that track assets, alert based on geofences, and geolocate devices, all delivered through the familiar Google Maps interface.
Engage your users
- Increase visitor traffic and drive user action by embedding maps in your sites and applications. By embedding maps in your website and applications, you can create a visually rich experience that engages your users, encouraging a higher level of interaction.

Build amazing apps
- Build location-aware web and mobile apps by integrating the world’s most popular map. Power your location-based app with the Google Places API, which can be used to find nearby places across a wide range of categories. Help users find what they’re looking for faster with the Google Places Autocomplete API which suggests nearby places as you type. Calculate the optimal travel route and estimated time using the Distance Matrix API, and embed Street View to add local context to the application experience.

Routing and Directions
The Google Maps API delivers the full power of Google’s routing engine to your applications. You can generate routes between up to 23 locations for driving, walking or cycling. Routes can avoid toll roads or motorways, and travel time can be reduced by calculating the optimal order to visit each location. Travel time and distance between locations can also be calculated, for example if you want to offer users a way to filter search results by drive time.
