Google next generation 3D maps

By on June 2, 2012

3D generation is coming on Google Map. After months of rumours it was revealed that Apple will indeed move away from its Google-powered 2D map system in the upcoming iOS 6 update, in favour of a home-grown solution. It seems appropriate that Google would pre-empty that announcement to unveil its own improved mapping solution.

Though Google has Street View which is ostensibly a 3D rendering of individual addresses, and Google Earth, which does a great job leveraging the company’s multitudinous data points, there has yet to be a seamless and solid way for consumers to view cities, on a macro scale, in three dimensions. Google is expected to launch that very service five days before Tim Cook’s keynote address at WWDC.

This is another big competition between the both giant IT company and we as a consumer will wait and see what happens on Jun 6th.
