Google Maps provides satellite imagery of most areas of the world, and is searchable by address. When logged into your Google account, you can create your own maps that allow you to map a single location or map multiple locations. Once the map is saved, you can share the map with friends using a custom Web URL provided by Google. There is no charge to use the Google Maps website, nor is there a charge to open a Google account.
