Over one billion people use Google Maps services every month. On the Google Maps app, these users are often searching for local businesses - from restaurants, to car dealerships, to dentists, and more. Recently, we launched a new version of the Google Maps app for Android, iPhone, and iPad where we introduced several new features. Today we're introducing an updated ad experience we think is more attractive for users and more effective for advertisers.

Yes, ads in Google's mobile Maps applications. Fantastic.

We all pay lots of tax money to generate precise and up to date cartographic data, and hopefully more governments will open the data for use by e.g. OSM, such that we maximize the benefit of our investment.

Free our data :-)
