Google Maps Introduced “What’s here”

![Google Maps What Is New Feature](http://sanziro.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/google-maps-what-is-new-feature.png)

Google has [added a new “What’s here” option](http://google-latlong.blogspot.com/) to the pop-up menu when you right click on Google Maps. This option, depending on your zoom level, will display relevant location info on the left pane about the point of interest.

This feature takes into account the zoom level you’re looking at, and gives you the most appropriate geographical entity at that point. For example, if you’re zoomed in closely on Manhattan, you can get the full address of a point by clicking on “What’s here?”. Additionally, by combining this with the “At this address” feature that you may have seen in the left-hand panel, you can also see a list of the businesses located at that place.
