  • Last Updated : 13 Mar, 2020
Geek Week

The localization is a process to provide information in different languages. The default language is English in google maps. All the information provided in English like; city, option names, road, etc.

To customize or localize the maps mention the language while loading the google maps API.

Syntax:

<script src=
    "https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?language=ja">
</script>

Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
      
<head>
    <title>
        Google Maps | Localization
    </title>
  
    <!-- Loading map API -->
    <script src=
    </script>
      
    <script>
        function GFG() {
              
            var CustomOp = {
                center:new google.maps.LatLng(
                        28.502212, 77.405603), 
                zoom:17, 
                mapTypeId:google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
            };
              
            // Map object
            var map = new google.maps.Map(
                document.getElementById("DivID"),
                CustomOp
            );
        }
    </script>
</head>
  
<!-- Load map -->
<body onload = "GFG()">
    <center>
        <h1 style="color:green">
            GeeksforGeeks
        </h1>
          
        <h3>Google Maps</h3>
          
        <!-- Basic Container -->
        <div id = "DivID" style=
            "width:400px; height:300px;">
        </div>
    </center>
</body>
      
</html>
