While it’s been an amazing ride having the benefits of Google Maps Engine (GME) available for your business and personal use at minimal fees, it’s time to move on. Google has notified users that support for this product will end in January 2016. Google Earth API support will end in December of 2015. MapBusinessOnline.com (MBO) may be a suitable substitute for your Google Engine mapping requirements. MapBusinessOnline.com, a web-based/Cloud business mapping service since 2010 has a growing user-base. MBO was developed by the same team that originally created Esri’s BusinessMAP – a desktop mapping alternative to MapPoint for more than a decade.
