Google Maps API is an application programming interface developed by Google in order to aid software developers to easier develop mapping software. Using internet technologies, todays maps are created to be dynamic, and not static as they used to be. This paper defines the concept of using Google Maps API, and explains the steps needed to start developing a mapping software. Like any other technologies, this technology also has weakneses which are described in the paper. Through testing, it was concluded that manufacturers are not yet fully complied with EXIF standard. So, it is absolutely necessary to test the device and PHP installation before we can be sure that the data from the photo can be read. Web page has been created. At this web page user is able to test his/her own photographs with location embedded data and the link is given in the paper.
