Google and Apple set to announce their new mapping services – check out this video from Mashable
June 6th – Google Maps will announce it’s new mapping service “Gmaps”
June 11th – Apple will announce it’s 3D mapping service as well.
The comments on the article are very interesting and highlight questions surrounding 3D digital maps; mainly, what’s the point? 3D maps are often more difficult to interpret than 2D maps, and many would say that Google maps should work more on making navigation easier.
In any case, lots of interesting stuff happening this week in digital cartography!
