Google Introduces Place Pages on Google Maps

September 25, 2009

Google announced Place Pages on Google Maps, which makes Google Maps even more enhanced than it already is. Using Place Pages, you can now get more information about a place, such as restaurants, retail stores, and other businesses. Place Pages show general information about a place, as well as photos, reviews, web pages and user content.

For someone who is researching the 5th Avenue Apple Store that has never been there, they can already view photos and know how to get there using public transportation, as well as discover that it is open 24/7.

You can even view subway schedules and see what trains run at what station, which could be useful, and avoid an additional step to the MTA website:

If a place page lacks information, it can always be added through community edits or Google Map Maker.
