Yes, now you can create a custom maps from the drive, just as you create docs and spread sheet. Just got to New, More and then select “Google My Maps”. This will open up the “Untitled Map” and is now possible to create a custom map.
Over the period of time, Google said that user can view all saved maps and can be shared with others. You can even group them based on the category you want. You can name folders like “Travel”, “Party Places” and a lot based on your created maps. It also provides you the search feature which is also an important and interesting feature.
Apart from just creating maps, you can add layers to it. You can point out some places which you are interested in.
