500 attractions for travel on the map
In June, Google wants to expand the immersive view feature to other European cities such as Amsterdam, Dublin, Florence and Venice. The Internet company currently states the number of sights and attractions available worldwide as a 3D view in Google Maps at 500.
Whether the 3D feature is available for a sight becomes visible as soon as you tap on the corresponding marker on the map: The first photo in the picture gallery that opens is then marked with “Immersive View” as the entry point for the feature.
Change perspective, time and weather
Not only free hovering, turning or zooming is possible with the help of the fingers in the 3D view. As a special feature, there is also a time slider. This gives a predictive look at the weather on different days and times of the day and how crowded that location might be or get.
Immersive View is available in the Google Maps application for Android and iOS, so currently only runs on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets.
