Make better decisions
The Google Maps APIs offers an analytics tool that enables you to see how visitors interact with your maps. For example you can see how many visitors switch to satellite view, the level they zoom to, and which features of the map are most commonly used. This allows you to customize the user experience based on their preferences and encourage a higher degree of engagement and interactivity.More on Google Maps APIs

Engage your users
Trains schedule on swisstrains.ch
By embedding maps in your website and applications, you can create a visually rich experience that engages your users, encouraging a higher level of interaction. Whenever you have data that has a geographic reference such as an address or lat/long coordinates, it’s an opportunity to provide a more engaging experience through a map.
On swisstrains.ch you can get a live view of local trains, their location, status, arrival and departure times. This provides their passengers with timely and relevant information that helps them to save time and plan their travel accordingly.
