Question

Is it possible to host a deployment of google maps locally so that users, on a small local network, do not need an internet connection? This is for a tradeshow project that will not have internet connectivity.
I'm hoping to get an answer from Google on this, the Dev site suggests that this is the place to ask.

Solution

As far as I am aware it is not possible, the library functions often call external services for processing and the map tiles themselves cannot be downloaded. You could on the other hand use a local copy of OpenStreetMap as a base layer and then either use a local copy of the maps API over the top (being careful which methods to call to avoid errors) or even using OpenLayers for your mapping functionality.

Hope this helps.
