As noted by Dutch website iCulture and reported by iGen.fr, Apple has recently added several new European locations to its Flyover feature for Maps, including Rotterdam in the Netherlands, Malmö in Sweden, Strasbourg and Dijon in France, and Turin in Italy. This expansion follows a similar update earlier this month that added Flyover to cities in France, Sweden and the US.

iOS and OS X users can now take advantage of the Flyover feature, which first debuted in iOS 6 and OS X Yosemite. Flyover provides a detailed 3D look at a location, allowing users to zoom in to buildings and other notable landmarks in supported locations. The feature relies heavily on the technology Apple acquired when it purchased C3 Technologies in 2011.

Flyover was limited when it launched, but Apple has been adding locations at a steady pace with support for more than 100 cities worldwide. Apple also recently introduced the new Flyover city tours feature, which provides users with a guided aerial tour of landmarks in a select cities worldwide.

For me, Flyover seems to be one of those things that they just have to commit to now.

Shame.

Well, I use it almost everyday and am very glad its available. There are more uses to a 3D view of the world than just finding directions.

They're still wasting resources on this crud?

Useless, gimmicky feature and hardly the best way to view maps. Google Street view is far superior and more user friendly ... and that's hard for me to say given how much I loathe Google.

Wrong. Flyover is vastly superior to exploring places and get an overview of the situation, fast! Unless you want to look into an outdated window display of the store you’re going to, Google Street View is pretty impractical. If you actually lived in a city with flyover, you would understand that...

Nice. I'm a big fan of flyover. I use it whenever I can to "explore" cities for business and pleasure and have found it very useful for planning and getting to know my general surroundings. So the more cities the better.

Now if only Apple can get Hop Stop integrated with maps sooner rather than later....
