Recently Google expanded the features of Google Maps and Places APIs and added a number of interesting upgrades. This was announced in the Google I/O Developers conference.
Another addition to Google Maps API is the feature ‘Symbols’. This feature allows developers to exact more control over the styling of maps items like push pins, arrows and more. It is a visualization feature and Google showed its implementation by changing the regular air traffic data in to the form of small airplane icons flying across the U.S. map.
