Apple today added 20 new Flyover locations to Apple Maps on Mac and iOS, highlighting new cities and landmarks in the United States, Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Spain, France, Mexico, Sweden, Puerto Rico, and Japan. With the new additions, there are now more than 150 Flyover locations available in Apple Maps.

For those unfamiliar with the Flyover feature in Maps, it lets users see photo-realistic 3D videos of select areas, which they can zoom, pan, and rotate through to get a close up look at notable landmarks and points of interest. Some of the locations below were previously available as Flyover destinations, but have just been officially added to Apple's list of Flyover locations.

Flyover was first introduced alongside iOS 6 in 2012, and over the course of the last three years, Apple has been steadily adding new Flyover locations to the Maps app. As of February, some Flyover locations have been updated with real-time animated landmarks, making the Flyover experience more immersive, and many Flyover locations have an additional City Tour feature that walks users through different landmarks.

Because Google wouldn't let Apple have access to advanced mapping features unless they agreed to some disagreeable terms.

I don't get why people are questioning why Apple is working on maps. Google doesn't have a monopoly on maps just because they got started several years earlier. They weren't even the first. Why did Google start doing maps when MapQuest, DeLorme (and probably others) had already started?
Ironically, I was parodying the questioning of Apple Maps that you and I don't understand. I thought I made it clear by ramping up the absurdity and finishing with the line in which I used the word "crazy" to describe "improvement at a steady pace". Oh well. :)

I don't get why Apple keeps trying this Maps thing when Google already has a maps application. Come to think of it, Google has its own mobile OS, so why bother with iOS? They have their own CEO, too, so what's the point of having Tim Cook around?

Apple should just become Google instead of pursuing things as crazy as marginal improvement at a steady pace. :p
