Apple Maps iOS 8Apple has added 20 new Flyover locations to Apple Maps, including cities and landmarks in the United States, Australia, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa and Spain. Apple Maps now has a total of 141 destinations for Flyover, which provides photo-realistic, interactive 3D views of select areas that users can zoom, pan, tilt and rotate through.

The full list of new Flyover destinations:

  • Arches National Park, Utah

  • Badajoz, Spain

  • Bari, Italy

  • Belfast, Northern Ireland

  • Canberra, Australia

  • Chambord, France

  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape, France

  • Chichen Itza, Mexico

  • Coimbra, Portugal

  • Culiacán, Mexico

  • Durban, South Africa

  • Huelva, Spain

  • Le Mans, France

  • Mont Saint-Michel, France

  • Montpellier, France

  • Nelson, New Zealand

  • Nimes, France

  • Paestum, Italy

  • Reims, France

  • Teotihuacán, Mexico

    Apple has slowly been adding Flyover destinations to Maps since the feature was introduced nearly three years ago, including new cities in France, Sweden, Italy and the Netherlands and nine other locations last December. The company has also enabled turn-by-turn directions for Maps in Iceland and appears to have removed Siri voice-assisted directions in India at least temporarily.

    Flyover is so absolutely useless it's mind-boggling.

    They keep spending money and resources on the wrong things with Apple maps. Stop animating landmarks, stop adding cities to FlyOver. One commenter pointed out that this is a completely USELESS feature for a mapping application and I agree.

    Things Apple actually SHOULD be dumping ALL of its mapping team on:

    1) Map data - increasing the accuracy, integrity, reliability and volatility of its mapping data for better directions
    2) Point-Of-Interest (POI) mapping data - getting the latest and greatest list of businesses for users to search in maps
    3) Ease of use in mapping data/error reporting - as of now if you report an incorrect location, you have to use poor satellite data and a pin to tell Apple where it is, but it doesn't know where you are at the time of the report, so you can't drop a pin at 'your location'. 99% of the time when you're reporting when Apple got it wrong, it's after you've arrived at the 'correct' location. Making this process easier and more intuitive for users and business owners will go far in improving mapping data cheaply though 'crowd sourcing'.
    4) Improved and up-to-date satellite imagery
    5) StreetView

    That is all.

    Why is Apple wasting time on this useless feature while neglecting to update satellite imagery that is years out of date?

    I despise Google, but Street View rules them all. These 3D flyovers are great if you are using them in flight sim software as has been the case for many years now. I just don't see the utility in this for a mapping application.

    Wondering if those specially equipped vehicles belonging to Apple that were reported on a few months ago are going to do Apple's version of street level views.
