Unlock Your Data
Share vast repositories of geospatial data without going through the costly procedure of configuring servers and supporting a local infrastructure. Sharing data in the secure Google cloud becomes as easy as clicking the upload and publish button.
Sharing Made Easy
Set the permissions for who can see your data as easily as you can using Google Docs. You can set permissions for your project team, a specific client, the public, or even set up for your own private use. Mapping data can be accessed easily via Google Earth, Google Maps, Google Maps API, widgets, Android and Web Map Service (WMS).
Access your mapping data while working remotely, in the field, at airports and hotels – anywhere an Internet connection can be made on any PC or mobile device. Collaborate easily with colleagues working anywhere in the world.
Gain New Insights
With a real-time map access dashboard, obtain detailed analytics about who and when visitors are looking at your mapping data.
Expand Your Map Making Options
Combine your raw data with Google’s basemap data, which includes satellite and aerial imagery, 3D models, vector data, an extensive points of interest database, and even bathymetric data, to create customs maps that meet the needs of your target audience.
Easy to Use
No technical expertise or GIS training is necessary to use these tools. End users, millions of whom are already familiar with Google Maps or Google Earth, will be able to easily view the maps you create.
Google Earth Builder data can be rendered with Google Maps and Earth APIs, and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards such as Web Map Service (WMS). Google Earth Builder comes with a Google Maps API premier ID.
Reduce IT Costs
Focus more on making maps and less on IT management. Eliminate the time spent buying, maintaining, and patching software and servers. Reduce the IT administration time necessary to grant access to important data both inside and outside the firewall.
Secure Data Backup
Ensure data backup of your most precious mapping data and assets.
Scale up on your data needs without having to worry about about straining your storage capacity. Also, effortlessly scale to manage traffic spikes, like after a natural disaster occurs.
