Tencent Maps (formerly Soso Map Service) is a desktop and web mapping service application and technology provided by Tencent, offering satellite imagery, street maps, street view and historical view perspectives, as well as functions such as a route planner for traveling by foot, car, or with public transportation. Android and iOS versions are available.

The online version of Tencent Map is available only in the Chinese language and offers maps only of mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau (Taiwan is excluded), the rest of the world appearing unexplored.

In September 26, 2014, Tencent Map announced that maps of Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan were launched for the mobile version. They have not been launched for the online version yet.

Street view service

The street view service of Tencent Maps was first launched in 2011, but later stopped because of restrictions on geographic data in China. It was relaunched on December 13, 2012.
