Google Maps finally in Google Data Studio!

At the beginning of May, we were pleased with a new feature in Google Data Studio – the implementation of Google maps in the Data Studio environment. You don’t need a paid API to use Google maps in Data Studio, but you can still design the map at the json code level.
