Roll up Roll up, Latest news today is that Google has announced that it’s taking Google Maps offline. Yes, the promise is that it will not bleed you data dry (new term) and even if you are abroad you can getting your mapping done DATALESS !
Google also showed off a backpack-type Street View rig — powered by Android, if you’ll believe it — that’s taken us down to street level in places cars can’t go. Pretty slick.
And then there’s 3D modeling in Google Earth. Google walked us through how it does things, making them better all the time. Its modeling has taken a big leap forward with the use of airplanes and oblique mapping, with computers doing some serious number crunching to make things impossibly smooth. It’ll be coming to both Android and iOS devices in ridiculous resolution.
Its great to see this in action !
