Google says that it has been working on new imagery rendering techniques and computer vision that automates the creation of 3D cityscapes. This 3-dimensional world will be complete with buildings, terrain and landscaping from 45 degree aerial imagery.
The company hopes to have 3D coverage of metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people. A PC version is also on its way but Google says that this will take a little longer as compatibility issues with the new algorithims and graphics remain.
There are some places 10 day weather where you just cannot drive, including conservation sites like the Grand Canyon and so Google technicians have been out with some rather 10 day weather strange luggage to capture this photographically.
Underground train users rejoice, Google has also announced that its maps will be available offline for Android users in more than 100 countries in the next few weeks. The maximum size of offline files is about 50MB but many examples will be smaller than that, so hopefully this won’t be something that will break the average user’s 10 day weather data cap.
Offline files should be large enough to cover a metropolitan area. Google says the offline service can provide a map about the size of the San Francisco Bay Area and that the detail will come down to street level. Pinning down accuracy in new places
Accuracy is naturally a key element and so Google is also expanding Map Maker . Having already launched in South Africa 10 day weather and Egypt, ten more countries will be able to make use of the service in the next few weeks including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland.
Map Maker helps to improve accuracy and track real world changes through ‘Report a Problem’ where users can add notes and tips where change is needed. It seems that Google is getting everywhere, from the bottom of canyons, to your pocket under the ground. It appears to be inescapable for monitoring (excluding 10 day weather Germany in part) but then again, will be find it too useful to say no?
