  • Google announced its latest imagery update for Google Maps and Google Earth today.

    “Our quest to create the most comprehensive and accurate map of the world is ongoing, but we’re happy to take a pause and share some impressive progress that our Google Maps and Earth imagery teams have recently made,” the company says.

    Google, I bet you are. Today, Apple CEO Tim Cook also posted an apology for his company’s maps product that took over for Google Maps on iOS. In case you haven’t heard, there have been a few complaints (about things like accuracy).

    Google has released new 45° imagery in 51 cities, as well as new high resolution aerial and satellite imagery in 17 cities and 112 countries/regions.
