Google’s already uber detailed maps get an overhaul in areas of Europe, Africa and Asia. The areas of focus are updated maps of Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lesotho, Macau, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore and Vatican City.
The maps are said to be more detailed and precise such as coverage of National Heritage Areas, as well as more detailed coastlines and bodies of water.
Google has added more accurate names and locations, such as airports, universities and public squares, better and more clearly labeled ferry routes in many places.
Local roads are more accurately distinguished from highways, and multi-lingual names are available for a larger proportion of roads in many countries. Another update mentioned having maps available offline in Google Maps for Android.
I personally use Google Maps all of the time and I am always amazed at the level of detail achieved. I imagine it won’t be long before Google will allow you to virtually walk through any public building right from your home computer or smart phone.
