The number of closed businesses rises by the day during the coronavirus outbreak.
Google Maps is a popular tool that tells you where you’re going and how to get there. The app and corresponding website are designed to map out the most efficient route either by car, foot, bike, or public transportation to any given destination. The app gives audio directions to users or simply follows along a person’s route to show someone where to go silently. Google Maps also offers “street view,” an option that lets a user see what it looks like on the ground in any given location. The tool also uses satellite data to most effectively map out areas around the world. Google first introduced Google Maps in 2005 and has rolled out subsequent updates over the years. At the end of 2017, Google even took Google Maps out into the solar system, allowing users to explore planets and moons from the comfort of their own computers. Who knows what’s next for the popular mapping tool? We’ll have to wait and see.
