What can we say about Google's new 3D map function? That is simply amazing! Big G's presentation of the new Earth and Maps impressed for three specific reasons: maps with 3D details, the ability to access maps even offline, and a portable camera for foot records (a kind of backpack). All of these features come together in two applications: Earth and Maps.
When we access the apps, the impression is that we are flying over the location we want to find. This is because 3D images are made by their own fleet of planes that capture images in different cities. At first this is a feature only designed for Google Earth.
In the video below we can get an idea of how the application works. The example of the city of So Francisco that went through this photo shoot and will integrate the app that arrives for Android and iOS at the same time:
New to Google Maps for those who do not have an unlimited internet plan, as the app can now be accessed even without a connection. The user downloads the desired part when connected and can then view the route at any time on his smartphone.
With all that Google has shown in terms of technological breakthroughs in its map applications, Apple has to go a long way with OpenStreetMap to get to the bottom of Google's 3D Earth.
