No longer is Google Maps just for local, small-scale maps — Google Maps has become interactive! Welcome Google Maps Gallery, the newest way to view all types of maps, including hard to find, historical, and business-specific maps.
What is Google Maps Gallery?

- Maps are being brought into the digital world
- We now have more access to older, more historical documents
- Other map categories can be found as well — Internet data usage of an area, where there have been shipwrecks throughout history, and much more
