Is it legal to use screenshots from google maps in a slidesh

Postby jacktar » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:21 pm

I need a map in one of my slideshows, and wonder if it is legal to use a screenshot from Goole maps.

Best regards

If you take a look here http://www.google.com/permissions/using ... phics.html and scroll down the page to 'Google Maps and Google Earth' you will see that Google provide have "built a tool which will help you understand the requirements for different use cases". Just click the link provided on the page to access it.

Hope you get a clear answer to your question.
