When you’re trying to find your way across any country in the world, Google Maps can help. But, they’re changing things up by implanting 3D technology and giving you a new look. What do the various landmarks look like when you’re trying to find your way? This is the question that new technology can answer, which is why the change makes the news. In essence, we’re seeing how the development of 3D visuals will impact everything we know about the digital world.
Friday marked the announcement by Google that they were adding the new implementations to the platform. The ability to view routes in 3D can help travellers get a better idea of what they’re up against while on the road, and when you click the 3D play button, you’ll see everything as you would if you were there…more or less. What you will see when you are previewing a route is a fly-by route that is stoppable when you want to see something in more detail.
Areas along the way are searchable, so if there are particular landmarks that you want to scope while on your trip, you can learn everything necessary to help you determine if, and whether or not, you should make the stop. Understanding how your surroundings look when you’ve never been there before should prove to be quite useful, and again, Google lands a knock-out punch when staying with the times. Welcome to 3D Google Maps everyone, and there’s definitely something here that should change the way we look at digital directions.
