Google Drive is getting a little more powerful today by integrating custom Maps.

Now Drive users can create, share and manage Google’s custom My Maps right from Drive. You can even import data from your Drive documents, such as addresses from a spreadsheet or form, to pinpoint them on the map.

The change should make it a little easier to mange all your custom mapping, as these will now be accessible from the same place you find your documents and spreadsheets.

It also makes it easier to share custom maps with coworkers and team members, as you can simply drop the map into a shared Drive folder.

The new My Maps integration is rolling out to everyone today.
