Maps photo & video policy

Google is dedicated to helping you discover the world around you. Images and videos on our platforms are intended to enhance your experience, helping you preview and explore places nearby or across the globe. We go to great lengths to make sure content published from third-party contributors is useful and reflects the world our users explore.

To help ensure everyone viewing user generated content has a positive, beneficial experience, we’ve developed these Image and Video Product Policies. These policies explain important differences between how we address content captured in different formats, how we treat inappropriate content, and the necessary criteria for publishing images or videos to Google platforms. Please check back from time to time, as we may occasionally update our policies.
