    Use Helicopter View with Google Maps

    As an enhancement to Google Maps, Helicopter View has now launched as a 3D preview option.

    Paul Yang, Google Maps Engineer, explains, “Let’s say you’re planning a road trip down the beautiful coast of California’s Highway 1 and want to be able to see what the route really looks like. California’s rugged coastline is not to be missed, but the top-down view really doesn’t give you a good sense of what this majestic terrain is like. Using the 3D preview; however, you can get aerial view of the route, as if you were in a helicopter flying above the road.”

    Do you find this view more helpful compared to Google Earth and the typical Google Maps experience?

    Neat! This is going to be my new favorite thing. I love using Google Street View to "travel" anywhere and this seems to give an even better view.

    Basically, this is me:

    Google Maps Ads 3D Graphics

    Google is at it again, this time making Google Maps even cooler by adding 3D graphics and vector maps like what you get on Android phones. Check out the video:

    I don't know about you, but I'm never leaving my house again! =p
