Although you could use professional software to insert a map into PowerPoint, adding a map from Google Maps is a great free alternative. Whether you are adding pizazz to a company PowerPoint presentation or demonstrating a concept for grade school students, a Google Map can give you the precise area or region you need to make your presentation perfect. You can insert a Google Map into a PowerPoint presentation in seconds using copy and paste.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Create the map at the Google Maps website that you want to insert into the PowerPoint slide.

  2. 2

    Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard.

  3. 3

    Open Microsoft PowerPoint and navigate to the slide into which you want to insert the map.

  4. 4

    Click on the area on the slide where you want to insert the map and then press "Ctrl" and "V" together.

Tips and warnings

  • Place your browser into full screen mode before you copy and paste the map. This removes your browsing tabs and creates a cleaner picture. To enter full screen mode in Firefox and Google Chrome, press "F11." In Internet Explorer, press "Alt" and "Enter" together.
