While iOS users are witnessing the abysmal performance of Apple Maps on their devices, Google continues its march to excellence. The company has upped the ante on its mapping service by equipping Google Maps with all-new high-resolution satellite imagery which includes stunning 45-degrees aerial imagery.


45 degrees aerial imagery

High-resolution satellite images, as shown by Google Maps after this update, are truly a beauty to behold. Currently, these maps show off high-resolution views of 17 cities and 112 countries.

45-degree aerial imagery is also a stunning new feature. It allows viewing places and cities at a somewhat slanted angle and once you view it, you really feel like being in the place, such is the clarity of these images. The 45-degree imagery encompasses 37 U.S. cities as well as 14 other cities internationally.

The regions which can now be viewed in stunning high-resolution aerial images include: Florence OR, Kellogg ID, Casper WY, North Platte NE, Concordia KS, Alva OK, Austin TX, Nevada MO, Chilicothe MO, Toulouse FR, Clermont-Ferrand FR, Angers FR, Nantes FR, Troyes FR, Lille FR, Thun CH, Lucca IT

While the high-resolution satellite imagery is now available for the following regions: Canada, United States, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Antarctica, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Zambia, Angola, Malawi, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Benin, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Mali, The Gambia, Senegal, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Turkey, Iran, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Poland, Lithuania, Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzebekistan, Turkmenistan, China, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, The Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand
