Although Google’s 3D “immersive view” isn’t yet complete, you may start to see a preview of it today.
Aerial views of around 100 well-known sites, including Alcatraz in San Francisco, Big Ben in London, and the Empire State Building in New York City, are now available in Google Maps updates for Android and iOS.
To provide realistic 3D views, the feature combines artificial intelligence with billions of photos, including satellite and street view photographs. This is marketed by Google as a preview tool for travelers, but it’s also a useful method to satisfy your curiosity without making travel plans.
Users from all across the world may access aerial images. You only need to locate a landmark on Google Maps and go to the Photos area to see whether one is present.
There are also two more upgrades that are more traditional but still highly useful. Google is improving Maps’ bike navigation by adding more specific routing information, such as information on busy roads, stairwells, and steep hills (such as a major thoroughfare versus a side street).
Additionally, it will be simpler for you to compare routes. In the next few weeks, “hundreds” of communities will receive the biking upgrades.
