what do you mean by 'data google map'? Do you want to add the satellite images etc as a layer? That is against the Terms of Use of Google Maps. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 4 '12 at 4:52

Maybe you can use ArcGis and Arc2Earth. It is very expensive, but legally

share|improve this answer allows you to load basemaps different providers, but no google for legal reasons. It is open source and can also be used as an api for your own applications.
