Geekers - Google Maps is a web service in the form of mapping developed by Google. This service provides satellite imagery, street maps, panoramas, traffic conditions and route planning for traveling by foot, car or public transport. Google Maps is the main target when we, as users of today's technology, find and search for a particular location.


This is certainly very easy for us to travel. With Google Maps, you may not worry too much about visiting places you don't know before. Google Maps also provides a guide service that is ready to guide you with the fastest route options they have.



However, sometimes when you visit a place it might be difficult for you to remember the location again. Meanwhile you want to save the location in case one day you will come back to visit.


Well, Google Maps provides a way that you can use to mark the location you want. The location you marked will be saved and displayed on your map view.
