Several new hardware and software innovations were showcased at the Google I / O Developer Conference. One of these new innovations is Google’s mapping service. Google Maps users now have Immersive View available. This combines street view and aerial photography to provide greater precision and relevance.
Google Maps users will have the option to use Immersive View to view more details of the places they wish to visit. For example, integration with satellite imagery will allow you to view a particular area from above to get an idea of the area, after which you can go down below, starting to view the streets and specific places directly. The map overlays information about the current occupancy of the area and pulls in information about traffic jams. This allows the user to see information about the number of people at a park or beach, even before they leave the house.
Immersive View uses computer-generated imagery. It is a combination Google Satellite imagery and Street View photos. The new feature is currently supported by most devices but only in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. The future will see the function expand in other areas.
