Apple today made several updates to its Maps app around the world, adding new Flyover locations, expanding Maps Traffic info, and bringing the Nearby feature in Maps to additional countries.
New Flyover locations available today include Aomori, Japan; Bruges, Belgium; Lake Powell, Utah; and Limoges, France. Some of the locations listed may have previously been available as Flyover destinations, but were just added to Apple's list of Flyover locations.
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.
Along with new Flyover locations, Apple's website has been updated to note that traffic information is now available in the Maps app in Hong Kong and Mexico, bringing the total number of countries with traffic data available to 29.
Nearby, a feature introduced with iOS 9, has also been expanded to the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Nearby brings up local points of interest in the Maps app, allowing users to quickly locate restaurants, gas stations, coffee shops, and more.
Finally, Los Angeles is now listed as an official location with transit directions available, joining Baltimore, Maryland; Berlin, Germany; Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; London, England; Mexico City, Mexico; New York City, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Francisco, California; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Canada; Washington, DC; and China.
Transit information first became available in Los Angeles in December of 2015.
