Google Maps Dumps its Flat View of the Earth For Fully 3D Globe

Google announced new features of the map service this week from match users to restaurants' favorite places. Google has not settled down to two, but decided to end the week with one last surprise (which could irritate some people to a flat earth).

Today, Google Maps changes the perspective of the 3D globe mode (as Google calls it) from the Earth's plan view and displays the earth more accurately. In the previous flat map, Greenland looked almost the same size as Africa, but once zoom out is complete everything should be scaled appropriately.

Compared to the new features released earlier this week, this is a relatively small change, but eliminating the need to fit 3D objects to 2D displays. The map team has also been proved not to be part of the flat move, but it was not a problem, but it is something I always wanted to know. At this time 3D glove mode is only available on the desktop, so please visit maps.google.com and view it in magnified form to see the changes.
