Maps

Paper maps are a thing of the past. With apps such as Google Maps and Waze (to name only two out of nearly countless others), anywhere you can access Internet in any way on your smart device, you’ll have access to maps and your relative position on them. This convenient accessibility to maps in the palm of your hand makes it so physical maps are completely obsolete.

  1. Google Maps is a basic web mapping service application and technology provided by Google. It offers street maps, a route planner for traveling by foot, car, or public transport and an urban business locator for numerous countries around the world.
