Basic knowledge of Python is an advantage. Everyone sometimes uses Google Maps. To determine a route or to take a look at the map. Google makes it possible to also apply this map data in third-party applications. The Google Maps web services are a collection of HTTP interfaces for Google services that unlock geographic data. By using Google's services, the data is provided quickly, reliably and up-to-date. With the Python client for Google Maps Services you can work with the web services of Google Maps.


The client includes the functionality of the following APIs:

  • Directions API (plan routes)
  • Distance Matrix API (measure distance)
  • Elevation API (measure height)
  • Geocoding API (converts coordinates into addresses and vice versa)
  • Roads API (returns roads based on a location)
  • Time Zone API (time zone information based on latitude and longitude.
  • Places API (information about buildings, geographic locations or points of interest)

During this course, we'll first look at what a web service is and which ones are available. Then a connection will be made to this web service and we will see how to build a URL for this. We will also use the client libraries and the Python Client for Google Maps Services.

Learning objectives of this course:

  • The student knows the different possibilities of the Google Map API
  • You can integrate the Google Map API in your own application.
