Apple today added 11 new Flyover locations to Apple Maps on Mac and iOS, highlighting landmarks and features across several countries including France, Spain, Mexico, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United States.

For those unfamiliar with the Flyover feature in Apple Maps, it lets users see photo-realistic 3D videos of select locations, with tools for zooming, panning, and rotating to get a closer look at notable landmarks and points of interest. Some of the locations listed may have previously been available as Flyover destinations, but were just added to Apple's list of Flyover locations.

The full list of new Flyover locations:

- Monument Valley, Arizona
- Detroit, Michigan
- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
- Pensacola, Florida
- Mazatlán, Mexico
- Annecy, France
- Gorges de l'Ardèche, France
- Antwerp, Belgium
- Münster, Germany
- Pamplona, Spain
- Utrecht, Netherlands

Flyover was introduced alongside iOS in 2012, but over the last three years, Apple has steadily added new Flyover locations to the Maps app. Earlier this year, Apple updated some major Flyover locations with real-time animated landmarks, making the Flyover experience even more immersive. Many Flyover locations have an additional City Tour feature that walks users through different landmarks in each city.

Münster, really, Apple?! There are lots of big cities in Germany, not available yet, and you chose Münster?
They add what is ready. Probably big cities require more work and more permissions to shoot a flyover.

The most useless feature ever! I wish Apple would put their map efforts into improving accuracy and/or something useful like live traffic and Street View.
If its that useless why are Google trying to do 3D maps too? Why does nobody complain at the ridiculous waste of everyone's time when they 'open sourced' the effort to manually model all the buildings one at a time in sketchup? And why is nobody laughing at them when they get stuff wrong?

I also don't see it in Pittsburgh :( I am curious if they updated the satellite imagery too. They still have Mellon Arena in the satellite image, which is obviously long gone...
Yep I always liked the igloo... Saw green day play there lol... I like Consol too though, going out this weekend for a couple games :)

If they open-sourced this effort, all the major cities would be complete.
