To provide local geographic data, Google Maps is now accessible from your local search domains for 11 countries across the region including: Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman, and Saudi Arabia. You’ll also be able to use it in Arabic as well as English and French for some countries.
You can use Google Maps to search for a city, navigate your way around towns, or find a local business.
Check out some of the following features:
- Use My Maps to create your own personalized maps, for example a customized map of your favourite places in your neighborhood to share your experiences with others.
- Google Map Maker, which’s available across the world in more than 180 countries and regions allows you to use your local knowledge to practically edit the entire map – from roads, businesses, parks, schools and more. Users have mapped out entire countries or just made their neighborhoods look stunning. Map Maker is now launched in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
- It’s also possible to include a Google map on your own website. You can display information – like a restaurant location or directions – on a Google map and embed it in your website using Google Maps API.
