The present generation’s mindset (to which I belong) is very different from that of its predecessors. There is a lot of difference. The way they think, the way they give importance to their apparel, the way they eat, the way they socialize and so on. You can find the present generation more adventurous, daring, and creative than the previous generations. The Previous generation was content. The Present generation wants more. Upon successful completion of a task, The Previous generation would relax, the Present Generation would say, “what next? “. The Previous generation liked to settle for what was available. The Present Generation tries to experiment and get what they want.

Before, Vacation meant, visiting relatives and friends, or at the most, hill stations. Today, people have redefined the word.  Exploring new places, road trips, camping, trekking have become the ways and means of a Vacation. If people went in groups before, now they prefer to keep it to a minimum number. So, for this generation, equipped with many gadgets, one PC app which would be help people, during their vacation, or while moving to a new town for work would be, Maps Of the world.
Why this App ?
It’s estimated that this App, has almost 8000 maps in its database, with quality content. Apart from maps, it has a section exclusively for USA, covering its cities. It’s available in many languages including German and Spanish. The content provided is authentic and it covers information on a wide range of topics It is extremely user friendly. Besides, it also provides ready- made and custom maps for publishing data sets, GIS services and content development services across all industry segments. 
Not many people like asking others for help or directions. Mainly because, not all are good in communicating what they want. People tend to confuse more often than convince us. Some people though with good intentions many not be able to help us in the way we want. Some people might not know the shortest route, and give us a round- about route, wasting our time and resources .That too when we’ve moved to a new town or city, if we are not familiar with the local language, we would have a tough time trying to explain where we want to go, and the locals would have a tough time trying to comprehend what we are asking for. So that becomes a major problem. When we have inbuilt maps as these, we need not rely on the ability of the person whom we come across to help us , but we can use the services of the Maps, which has reliable information and more than once, gives us multiple options and gives us the choice to select the most suited option for us. Using maps, we would have a rough idea of what route we would be taking, the estimated distance that would be covered, the approximate time that would be taken to cover that distance. And since this is available in a lot of languages, it is an added advantage.
People belonging to any age group can use this App because it is not very complicated, easy to handle and user friendly too. This is not an expensive investment, and hence this App could be used by practically anyone. Such is its versatility.
