    • Benefits of Google Maps API
      • Time and resources previously necessary to create aerial photos and basic street map layers are eliminated.
      • Lower entry barrier to GIS due to time and cost reduction.
      • Server requirements for hosting only the community specific data is minimal and performance
      • The application can be easily duplicated for other organizations with similar project scopes.
      • People are already familiar with Google Maps . There is less reluctance to using the application and less time required for orientation to the tasks of data entry and upkeep.
