Black Friday and the holiday shopping season are right around the corner. This means its time to start planning where you are going to find your deals, and the quickest ways to get yourself in the store, to the items you want, and on to the next place to get your deals. Google is ready to help, with indoor Google Maps of select retailers that will help you get in, get the deals, and get out.
Google has certainly been busy updating Maps in the month of October, and now, they've rolled out a new feature that shows terrain, color gradations to depict vegetation, and labels for natural land formations. This helps Google Maps provide even more detailed information to users of its service. Google Maps users can now find great forests, mountain ranges and other natural formations more easily.
Google Maps just keeps getting better and better each and every day. From continuous updates, new features, more street view locations and more Google isn't slowing down anytime soon. They know they have the best mobile maps system available -- but they aren't stopping at that. Today Google's showing us their "Trekker" system for Street View making the trek through the Grand Canyon.
Google? Well today you'll get the chance to do just that. Google has opened the virtual doors and is allowing the world an inside look at "where the internet lives" with a virtual tour of multiple data centers across the globe. You even can roam the halls with Street View.
Google Maps and their Street View was already pretty impressive before today, but the new update Google pushed out to Street View today was more than just bug fixes. Today on the Google Lat-Long Blog we learned that this was actually the "biggest update ever" to Google Maps and Street View. More details are available below.
rolling Street View out to mobile browsers everywhere. Just like on a computer, Street View allows you to get a view of what places around the world look like if you were standing right there. With the feature on mobile browsers, users can see what it would like to stand somewhere while they are actually standing there. Google offers some interesting suggestions for using Street View on a mobile browser. They suggest using it to get a feel for the ambience of a restaurant before you arrive or checking out a new shop across town to see if it's worth the treck. There is also the time-killing aspect of checking out locations you may never get a chance to visit in real life. Using Google Street View in your browser could not be much easier. Users simply point their mobile browser to maps.google.com and click the little stick man on the bottom of the screen. From there, users simply slide their finger around the screen to change the exact area in which they look. Users can also use Street View to get more information on a location such as Google+ local pages, interior panoramas, and photos shared by other Google users. I checked out the web app on my device, and it worked exactly as advertised. Let us know in the comments if you checked it out on your mobile device.
Google is on a roll with the Google Maps updates lately.
