Location searching on Google Maps to get easier in India

Google Maps data is now open to game developers

Google Maps and the developers of the games, both invest a considerable measure of time and energy on a certain something, which is displaying a world for their clients to investigate.

With the "Smart Address Search" feature, Google Maps will try to use all the pieces of information in the address and provide options of landmarks and points of interest that the user can best identify with.

Another important feature that has been recently added is the ability for Google Maps Voice navigation in six new Indian languages. Google plans to reveal more about the rest on this year's Games Developers Conference, which will be held from March 19 to March 23 in San Francisco. Television shows have off periods and The Walking Dead: Our World AR game offers a way for fans to stay active in the community in between episodes. With the APIs, it will be easier for developers to build games as they will be able to pull data from Google Maps, instead of manually creating map-based models. So it's integrating the Google Maps API-currently used by all sorts of apps with maps on your phone-with the popular Unity video game engine.

"We're excited to be bringing the best of Google to mobile gaming", said Jacoby.

Nigeria's President Reportedly Negotiates Release Of Abducted Schoolgirls
I think this is the best way to help the Nigerian government to get these girls released, which we hope will be done peacefully. Buhari is now touring states ruptured by bloodletting in recent months after he had been criticised for not doing so.

Lastly, Google is introducing a new API so that developers can create gameplay experiences around real-world locations.

The first games to leverage this vast data trove will be Ghostbusters World, Jurassic World Alive and The Walking Dead: Our World, with the latter two closely resembling the gameplay of Pokémon Go.

We explain the plans here, but one of the titles to stand out most so far is The Walking Dead: Our World. "In this way you can create unique game environments that still feel connected to the real world", says Patrick Donelan, lead engineer on the project.

The real-time data set is available in Unity format for developers, including access to over 100 million 3D buildings, landmarks from more than 200 countries, and roads.
