When working with Visual Basic .NET, it is possible to incorporate Google Maps into a Windows Form. This allows you to create a user interface that includes a map, which can be useful for a wide variety of different types of programs.
To use Google Maps in a Windows Form, you will need to first create a new Windows Form in your Visual Basic .NET project. Once you have your form set up, you can then add a WebBrowser control to the form. This control allows you to display web pages within your Windows Form.
It is important to note that, Google Maps API requires billing account and you need to enable the billing account, and also you will be charged for usage of the API.
Additionally, you can also use the Geocoding and Reverse geocoding feature of the Google Maps API to convert an address or coordinates to its respective location on the map and vice versa.
