Google Maps :: Using Google Maps Search Facilities
You can use standard Google Web Search conventions with Google Maps. For more information, see Google Search.
Google Maps also has Google Maps SearchAssist.
In addition there are a number of Google Maps Search conventions that are available from the search box that allow you to search for different kinds of places. Some options available from the Google Maps Search box are:
Town or village – try your local town or village. You will be given worldwide alternatives in a search drop-down Search Assist box. Just press [Return] or choose the option you require to obtain a road map. The defaults are the road map and a location in your default IP address location (unless you have switched off the Country Redirection with '/ncr', when the USA location is the default).
City – try a city that interests you. The same defaults apply as for towns and villages
State – shows a map of the entire state.
Province – as above.
Country – as above.
Continent – shows a subset of a world map with the continent you require at the centre.
Address – try your own address. If Google Maps cannot find your address then it will offer you the option to get a map of your town.
Roads and intersections – not very efficient outside of the USA.
Geographic feature – this must be a specific named feature such as 'Cheddar Gorge, UK' rather than a generalized geographic feature such as 'karst'.
Co-ordinates – specify the latitude and longitude as in +43 22 24. -103 33 55 (note that it is not necessary to put the degree and minute signs and that a full stop between the longitude and latitude can be put in or left out), Google Maps Search interprets this format as co-ordinates and either expands the co-ordinates and / or supplies a map with the co-ordinate location in the centre.
