Google Maps is one of the most widely used apps that is facilitating our lives with the best it could do. Whoever conceived the idea of developing Google Maps, will be a gem of a person. Initially, Google Maps just used to tell us the route of the destination we wanted to reach, which was too much for us. But Google always had better and bigger plans for us. With time it launched more and more features, facilitating us in a better and more appropriate way. Now Google Maps not only help us to reach our destination but also tells us if there is too much traffic on our route or if someone has blocked the path with containers. Not only this, but it also tells us which one is the most appropriate route to follow in such circumstances. The list doesn’t end here, and it tells us if the road is very thin for cars to pass or if there are too many bounces on the way. The app facilitated not only vehicle travellers but also people who wanted to go somewhere by walking. It helped many businesses to make themselves recognised by pointing out them on the map during your destination. The list is so long, and I cannot cover each and every feature here, but we have just come to know that how much of the World it’s mapped with Street View and Earth.
Google Reveals the Actual Percentage of the World it Covered with Street View and Earth
Well, everyone would be expecting that the company has photographed an enormous amount of this world, but for the very first time Google gave the figures itself, and they are appraisable. According to a report, Google has photographed 10 million miles of Street View imagery and 36 million square miles of Google Earth imagery. Roughly, Google has covered 98 percent of the places throughout the globe. Thought Google Maps for Android is far much better than the one on Apple; however, the same street-level photography is launched for Apple Maps in iOS 13.
The company is planning to cover the 2 per cent of the area of the world it has left. Furthermore, it is planning to make the app more convenient for users by introducing more set of features. Let’s see how Google will stun us in the next few years.
