Google announced today that it’s making its custom map creation tool called Google My Maps available to users inside of Google Drive. That means that that custom map tool will appear as a Drive app alongside the usual Google Doc, Sheet, Slides, Drawings, etc (as pictured above).

Google is also including some new features in the latest version of Google My Maps:

In addition to accessing your Google My Maps in Drive, you can now add more layers and points of interest to your map, import bigger spreadsheets and include more details in each info box. Whether you’re mapping out the best surf spots down under or campgrounds in California, you can add all your favorite areas with more details across even more layers.

You can create a new map in Drive by selecting New>More>Google My Maps.

Google says previously created maps with Google My Maps will become available through Drive over the next week.
