Google gives travel industry a boost with launch of Gallery system


Article Excerpt:

Google has created a system to allow third parties to place data (be it an interactive map or a static image map) on Google Maps and make it accessible to a larger audience.

The project – Google Maps Gallery – enables organizations to share data on a map to be publicly discovered by people using Google Maps, Google Earth and search engines.

Google says:

“Maps Gallery works like an interactive, digital atlas. You can explore historic city plans, climate trends, housing affordability, shipwrecks and up-to-date evacuation routes.

“As the Gallery grows, it’ll be easier to find out where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going, giving us a new way to look at the world around us.”

In the context of the travel industry, the use-cases for travel brands to leverage the power of a digital atlas is enormous.
