After getting success in India, Google has updated its Google Map from 2D and made it available to the users in 3D also.

Everyone uses Google Maps. But very few people know that when Google Maps was launched in India in 2008, it immediately flopped. Because in America every road has a name like Main Street, Church Street etc. But in India the names of roads are used less. Earlier in India, all the directions on Google Maps were like turn left or turn right. People did not understand such instructions, hence Google Maps could not work here.

But to deal with this situation, Google formed a creative team of its employees Olga and Janet and sent both of them to India. In ground research, they asked shopkeepers for directions, asked people to draw routes to familiar places and followed people. In this way he learned how the local people of India find their way.

Research became an important tool in the success of maps.

They came to know that here the route is shown on the basis of landmarks. For example, turn left from Big Bazaar, in front of Central School etc. These landmarks include parks, shopping centers etc. In this way Google changed its maps and started giving directions based on landmarks instead of street names.

Google Maps started with notes written on whiteboard

Talking about the beginning of Google Maps, in 2004, Google Maps co-founder Noel Gordon wrote his ideas on the whiteboard, which came to the public in the form of Google Maps in 2008. Earlier Gordon worked as a fabric cutter in a clothing factory. In this way, he got worldwide recognition through Google Maps.

Now Google Map helps in 3D also

After getting success in India, Google has updated its Google Map from 2D and made it available to the users in 3D also. This service of Google is free worldwide, which anyone can use.
