Simplify Map Development
Use the intuitive, easy-to-use tools of Google Maps and Google Earth to develop maps for the public. No special technical expertise or GIS training is required.
Share Information Easily
Publish geospatial data or maps to the Internet for citizens to view without having to utilize network administration resources. Internal mapping applications like crime tracking, emergency planning and infrastructure management can also be managed and shared without IT involvement.
Make Your Data Accessible
Allow developers to access your mapping data for their own application development purposes with easy permission setting controls.
Select how much storage and page views you want for your production mapping environment and reduce the need to manage GIS software and back-end spatial database licenses, plan for redundancy and fail-over, procure and maintain hardware and IT systems, and purchase more storage as employees or land holdings grow.
Have multiple offices in multiple countries securely share data and custom map layers for the purpose of drilling wells, routing pipelines, building refineries, and and exploring for new natural resources.
Empower the Field
Employees working off-site and in the field can access mapping information from smart phones, netbooks, and tablets without reconfiguring the publishing settings for each device. Simply create and publish the mapping data on Google Earth Builder, and it will render the same on all supported devices used by government employees, wherever there is Internet connectivity.
Easily Share Mapping Data
Upload your mapping data to a secure cloud for colleagues, other departments, even other agencies to access and use for their own mapping needs.
Enhanced Mapmaking Capabilities
Leverage the petabytes of Google’s geo-infrastructure data to enhance your geospatial data and create custom map layers that can then be shared internally or published to the Web.
