Is Google Maps in your neck of the woods? A new, interactive way to find out!

Tuesday, November 27, 2007 at 2:22:00 PM

The good news: here at Google, we're constantly increasing map coverage internationally: pushing out new tile updates, adding geocoding/routing data, collecting local business results, etc. The bad news: it's not easy keeping up with the coverage and remembering where we have what. I can barely keep track, and it's my job. :)

So, we've collaborated on a spreadsheet that details our coverage for every country where we have anything, and hooked it up to a nifty auto-filter mechanism so that you can quickly answer questions like:

  • Which countries have map tiles and local business results?
  • Which countries have localized map controls?
  • Which countries have driving directions and geocoding? (shown below)

The FAQ item pointing to the spreadsheet is here, the auto-filterable spreadsheet is here, and for good measure, the published spreadsheet is here. Please post in the forum if you have any questions or suggestions for improving the spreadsheet. Now, go forth and make internationally relevant mashups!
