Google Maps is one of the applications that are not missing from a smartphone. And it’s that having software that tells you where you are and how to get to a site never hurts. But sometimes it is not just a matter of using the search engine and that the application surprises you, but that you can view the digital map yourself and choose a location. This is called Pin and we’re going to tell you how to make it and make the most of it Google Maps.
How to use Google Maps Pins
Cartographic applications have a form of use similar to that of any map. They are based on the coordinates that allow you to select a point on the map. Electronics has democratized its use and now everything is as easy as searching for the name of a city, restaurant or point sent to you by your favorite messaging application. These actions can be very simple, especially the last one, but even this one has a number of ways to use it.
For this you need to know what Pins are. You’ve probably seen it, because it’s currently the icon of the Google app. This is used to locate a specific point on the map, whether or not it is an important point that contains detailed information. To use it, just select the site you have seen to get the information. Otherwise, all you have to do is press and hold the screen on the site you want to view to post one of these Pins. You can also use the right mouse button when doing this from your computer.
Once this is done, two things will appear in the search box: one can be the name of the site you select and the other a coordinate. The latter is important because it is part of the second part of the article to post and share a pin on Google Cards.
