Time Zones

This free tool shows Google Maps Time Zones, plus the current time and GMT offset for any location worldwide.

View a zoomable timezone map including time zone lines, and optionally add city limits, county lines and state lines to the map as well.

TIPS FOR USING THIS TIME ZONES MAP TOOL:
  1. Type any place or address in the “Search places” box above the map
    OR: Zoom into your place of interest on the map
    The Time Zone boundaries will draw on the map, and the timezone name, GMT offset* and current date and time for your chosen location will appear at the bottom of the map**
  2. Optionally, check the “Show city/county lines” checkbox in the lower left corner of the map to see City Limits, County Lines and State Lines overlaid on the map (available in the U.S. only). If city limits don’t appear, zoom in further.
  3. Click the “⊕ Locate” button in the upper right corner of the map to use your current location***

** All information is reported based on the location of the blue dot on the map; to move the blue dot, click the map
*** The “Locate” button will be more accurate on smartphones and other devices containing a GPS; desktop browsers typically show an approximate location

FAQs for this tool


How do you see a time zone lines map? Just follow the quick steps above and you will get a detailed timezone map that is zoomable, including time zone boundaries, name, GMT offset and current time for any location globally.

COVERAGE NOTES:
As with many things, time zone and time zone boundaries are much more complex than meets the eye. This is due in large part to the fact that there is no central global body that determines timezones; rather, time zones can be set at many different political levels (e.g. country, state, county, city, tribal region).
