We need to integrate maps in mobile Apps and Web frontend to show where an event is taking place. Maps is best because of it's international availability and the google api with a feature to recursive search.
Location, location, location. Choropleths are hot for a reason. When dealing with geography and housing why stop at bar charts, the map really makes my data quickly comprehensible to humans.
used the google maps api on several projects. been an avid user for quite a while. used it all around the world to navigate through public transport and through cities.
1) it's very easy to use. 2) shows satellite image, Google earth and many other features like traffic, terrain, etc. 3) Is very useful for driving etc.
