This course introduces you to Google Maps and how to use it to do many useful things. We will first cover how to control the map by going to a specific location, zooming in and out, and controlling the different views including the map view, satellite view, Google Earth view and street view. We will look at several useful functions like finding stores and restaurants, getting directions and modifying these directions, and measuring distances. Google Earth, a free application that can be downloaded from Google, will also be covered. It provides even more features on how to view our Earth and also includes views of the Moon, Mars, and the whole Universe.
