Abstract: Starting from the Onsala Methanol Maser Blind Survey of the Galactic Plane, stressing the recent results from the follow-up observations of newly the detected sources and making some statistical considerations, we try to make conclusions about the link between massive star formation and the presence of methanol masers. Moreover, 1.2 mm dust continuum emission seems to be ubiquitous wherever 6.7 GHz masers are found. Furthermore, the intensity ratio between 6.7 and 12.2 GHz maser emission seems to lie between 10 and 20. Finally the overall distribution of methanol masers in the Galaxy seems to follow the one of OB associations.
