Google Maps Enhanced with Weather

John Borkowski, August 23, 2011

Google Maps has another layer of data, now featuring weather provided by Weather.com. This added feature is great especially for mobile users who are looking up locations on their smartphone, they will be able to see the weather and make a traveling decision. Google announced this last week on their official blog. In addition to the icons, clicking on the icon will show a 5-day forecast.

Aside from the new weather reporting, local search and local seo services are still needed, however, to ensure your business is represented on the map. Say you’re planning a trip to Washington, D.C., and want to check out the local restaurants. Now you’ll be able to see which restaurant looks enticing, and, oh, what the weather will be that day.
