There’s a new Google maps being rolled out. I don’t like it’s UI for mapping and it feels wrong. Damn, I thought, they’ve spoilt something good. Then I started playing with the “satellite” view. Again I thought the old one was better.
Then I found the tilt button and the fact the aerial view data (for Scotland at least, I assume worldwide) has been updated. Then you begin to appreciate what a stunning tool this is for those who like hills.
Here are some examples of what it’s like. Be prepared to waste hours visiting mountains. From experience of placing myself virtually on summits and looking about the views are as I recall them. Awesome.
I’ll tolerate my dislike for some of how it works for this feature.
