Google Maps Technical Fundamentals Assessment

 

Questions:

 

How could your customer, a ride-sharing service, make use of the Directions API?

  • Optimize the provided route by automatically rearranging the waypoints in a more efficient order, influence routes with stopover and pass through points, and choose faster routes or reallocate deliveries to workers based on real-time traffic.
  • Find out how fast they are traveling, add street view panoramas to their application, add an image to a map, and encode a sequence of latitude/longitude coordinates (LatLngs) into an encoded path string, and decode an encoded path string into a sequence of LatLngs.
  • Optimize the street view by automatically rearranging the way the camera is looking, influence routes with speed limit and police known points, and choose faster routes or reallocate deliveries to workers based on traffic data from obtained over the last year.
  • Find out how fast they are traveling, add street view panoramas to their application, customize images to a map, and find the latitude/longitude coordinates for a given address (geocoding), or convert the latitude/longitude coordinates of a geographic location to an address (reverse geocoding).

 

You are in a meeting with a customer discussing the implementation of a Google Maps Platform integration. During the course of this conversation the subject of data storage is raised by the customer and you identify this as an ideal time to discuss the possibility of using Google Cloud Platform with their Google Maps solution.
What benefits do you tell the customer they can expect with a Google Maps solution that leverages Google Cloud?

Select All Correct Responses

  • Lower cost - Because there’s synergy and scalability and the output will be cheaper.
  • Security - whatever is built, created, coded, or stored, Google protects it.
  • Better data - the data visualization is better than the competition because of Google’s vast Cloud platform.
  • High latency - the combination of the two platforms creates a high latency.
  • Scalability - the GCP infrastructure serves billions of Google Maps users and is a platform that will scale and flex as businesses do.

During the Technical Discovery with a Real Estate customer, your prospect tells you that they want to present their user with a large number of location markers within a relatively small geographic area. What two considerations might you contemplate?

Select All Correct Responses

  • Who has access to the data?
  • Would they consider a heat map instead of markers?
  • Do they have the budget available?
  • What would be the impact on presentation to the user?

A customer is concerned about exceeding certain usage limits and wants an effective method of knowing if and when these limits are reached. Which of the following solutions should you recommend?

  • Use Google Stackdriver to set up an alerting policy which will enable your customer to set up alerts to trigger if their defined conditions are met.
  • Use Google Stackdriver as it’s Metrics Explorer will give your customer greater insight into their API usage.
  • Use the GCP Console dashboard. The basic view of usage, including pre-built charts will make it easy for your customer to keep track of their usage.

A customer has asked about placing an interactive map, or Street View panorama, on their site with a simple HTTP request. Which API allows them do this?

  • Street View Static API
  • Maps Embed API
  • Maps Static API
  • Maps JavaScript API

 

Your client needs you to integrate some map solutions into their internal system. Why would it be important during Technical Discovery to examine the user workflow?

  • Because user demographics impact the number of queries that will be consumed. Younger users will access maps several times to get an understanding of what is shown.
  • Because describing the workflow of the interface is important to understanding how many queries the app might need.
  • Because you need to look to utilizing practices that generate the highest queries per usage. It is important to ensure that if a user accesses the system, then it needs to load the JavaScript library and incur a PageView.
  • Because if a user has problems with the map technology they may be resistant to change.

  • Cloud Endpoints

 

You are in a discussion with a customer around the implementation of Google Maps APIs into their solution and, while asking some technical discovery questions, you find that a client wants to build an application from the ground up and will not be retrofitting an existing system. Why is this important to know for a Google Maps Platform implementation?

  • Building an application from the ground up has more predefined constraints.
  • Developing a new application from the ground up has significant time and financial impacts. Therefore, it is almost always a great deal cheaper, in time and money, to retrofit their existing solution with Google Maps Platform features.
  • Usually, retrofitting has very little constraints, which will save the customer money if implemented. Therefore, there is less resistance to change.
  • Typically, retrofitting brings with it a set of predefined constraints, which have time and financial impacts if changed. This means that designing an entirely new solution is actually cheaper in time and money than retrofitting their existing one.
