Why You Should Use It:
Google Maps Engine Pro was released on Oct. 21, 2013 and is targeted at small businesses. The regular Maps Engine is targeted towards the higher level enterprise user. Google has filled in the gap between consumers and enterprise users with this product.
If you have a database that contains location information, you can easily create maps out of it. If the data’s in a Google Drive document this is super easy because the map can simply be tied to the data that’s there.
Google has priced the Maps Engine Pro at $5/user/mo or $50/yr if paid up front.
