Apple was roundly criticized when the new Apple Maps app debuted with a few problems. Daniel Eran Dilger points out that Google has a similar problem.
Nearly a year after Apple introduced its own Maps service in iOS 6 with Flyover 3D satellite views, Google is expanding its own online Maps to support similar 3D satellite imagery, with the same sorts of buckled roads and visual distortions Apple was castigated for last summer.
The visuals are rather damning and appear to be quite similar to the Apple Maps renderings from last year.
Maps is hard work, yes, but where’s the outrage that accompanied Apple’s Maps?
