Google Earth Builder renamed

In September 2011, Google launched its Earth Builder - a product that allows customers to use Google's cloud computing infrastructure to store, manage and share their own geospatial data and maps.

Last week, however, Google announced a name change via its enterprise blog.

“We didn’t think “Earth Builder” reflected the true capabilities of the product or vision that we have for easily accessible geospatial data. So, today we're renaming Google Earth Builder to be called Google Maps Engine.”

In addition to this news, Google also announced the launch of its Google Maps Engine grants program for non-profits, which offers free mapping for non-profit organisations.
