Googe available in 3D soon! Not only can we can have directions and navigation to our destination without a wireless connection, but we are going to be able to see real close-up images of the places we search for through Google Earth images.
Google is launching a new upgrade for Google Maps to allow access without wireless connections to more than 100 countries on android devices. Google is also planning to collect images of places including cities street views with focus on locations that can be only reached by foot. This service is going to expand to bikers, hikers and pedestrian levels of map searching.
Google promises 3D view of cities and suburb to more than 300 million people. For now, this service is limited to the San Francisco skyline on the mobile apps. Google is also looking to roll out this application to desktop computers as part of a Google Earth desktop version.
It is pretty amazing to imagine that we are going to be able to visit the world in real time and see the current views of the most amazing places, from our compute,r or our mobile device, pretty soon. This is going to be another breakthrough tech moment that will forever change the world as we know it.
