We’re excited to bring you two new demos that showcase how Google Maps Platform products and features can come together to help you build unique, interactive geospatial experiences. The demos incorporate some of our newest capabilities like Advanced Markers, Data-driven styling, and the Routes API, plus other capabilities like Cloud-based maps styling, Street View and more. As you go through these demo, we hope that they inspire you to build something you’re passionate about, using our APIs.
Each demo features its own destination-inspired soundtrack, so don’t forget to turn your speakers up!
