Logo for Google Maps

Thursday, January 18, 2018, 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. In Multipurpose Room A.

Google Maps is an incredible web and mobile app that many of us use every day. However, we typically use only 20% of its capability. In this session, we will continue the Google Maps discussion from December.

We will demonstrate exciting features in Google Maps such as parking info, enhanced street view, location sharing, new color schemes, personal lists, offline maps, indoor maps, local directories, making hotel/dining reservations, and integrating with your email and calendar. We will also review two associated apps - Google Trips and Google Street View. No registration needed. Join us!
