Quiz Answers

1.

The Satellite view in Google Maps shows a satellite image of the current map area, whereas the Hybrid view shows the satellite image along with overlaid streets and street names.

2.

In order to view your own custom Google Maps applications, you must obtain an API key from Google and place it in the web page that creates the map. This web page must then be published to the exact URL location that you specified when obtaining the API key.

3.

A geocoordinate is a fancy way of referring to the latitude and longitude of a location. Although there is a temptation to say that geocoordinates only apply to planet Earth, Google Moon is an example of how geocoordinates could be applied to locations on any celestial body.
