Google Maps have been updated to offer the viewers a more detailed building footprint along with updated locations too for an easy track.
The mapping has been added by 25m new graphics across the US with the help of aerial imagery to showcase the new and updated footprints, which have been created with the computer vision tech that figured the shape of the buildings based on photos that are normally used in the "satellite" view mode.
Reports are confirming that the updated Google maps will see all the locations including Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, the San Francisco Bay Area, etc updated with the new data. Google has attempted to make its product as comprehensive as possible with the recent update.
The new mapping has been briefly explained to help users get an idea immediately about the located landmarks and navigate between locations easily.
Moreover, Google has also urged the users to help it tie up the data that is still left with the odd flaw. The search giant insists that its existing geo-tweaking tool can correct all the bad data, thereby drawing the accurate footprint.
"As we go about our daily travels, we often rely on buildings to orient ourselves, locate landmarks and navigate from place to place", Google Maps Engineering Manager Mr. Bobby Parikh wrote in a blog post today. "This expansion is part of our ongoing effort to provide you with maps that are as comprehensive as possible".
