  • Google Maps is a desktop and mobile web mapping service application and technology provided by Google, offering satellite imagery, street maps, and Street View perspectives, as well as functions such as a route planner for traveling by foot, car, bicycle, or with public transportation. Also supported are maps embedded on third-party websites via the Google Maps API, and a locator for urban businesses and other organizations in numerous countries around the world. Google Maps satellite images are not updated in real time; however, Google adds data to their Primary Database on a regular basis, and most of the images are no more than 3 years old. The opt-in redesigned version of the desktop application has been available since 2013, alongside the "classic" version. The redesigned version was met by user criticism regarding hiding some common functions, removing a scale bar, and lack of other features that include My Places and sharable customized links to parametrized split Street View and Map views. Google Maps uses a close variant of the Mercator projection, and therefore cannot accurately show areas around the poles.
