It’s amazing how much Google Maps has evolved since its introduction many years ago, from plain, boring and flat maps to the highly detailed maps featuring 3D structures we have today. Well, Google has announced that it is taking its maps to a whole new level – by enhancing the 3D models for over a thousand 3D landmarks all over the world. The purpose of these 3D landmarks? To help make them more recognizable and useful to folks visiting a country who rely on them to get around.
The new landmarks are already available online on the Google Maps website, but if you want some examples of which landmarks have been updated hit the source link below. There was no mention on when these updated landmarks will hit mobile versions of the Maps but we’re pretty sure it’ll happen in the future.
