Santa Monica, including the Santa Monica Pier, ferris wheel and all, was in 3D a couple of hours ago, now its back to 2D. Has this happened before anywhere else?

Interesting. Yeah I guess Apple is doing lots of testing with the maps.

I expect to have a pretty large 3D base by sept/oct

Could someone check a few cities for me. I don't have much hope they are in 3D, but it'd be worth a guess.

Atlanta, GA
Birmingham, AL
Huntsville, AL (The Space & Rocket Center would look pretty cool I would think)

I've noticed that not all 3D Cities also have the 3D grey buildings in standard mode. You'd expect them to be linked together.

is it just me or does this picture look a bit like it's from some post-apocalyptic nightmare-town?

New Vegas perhaps

I think between Maps and Siri it is clear that Apple is testing with a limited dataset first, then rolling out changes gradually. That's how cloud testing should work.

That's a million times more than the number of UK cities, so think yourselves lucky!

Go look at the list of cities C3 have already done in 3D and that'll give you an idea of what to expect. Hit: there's over 100 that C3 had done.

Change the name to Sondon and it looks like you have a better chance since over a 1/3 start with S. We are changing to Stlanta next week so we can get on Maps

The first UK city may not be London, as Copenhagen is the only capital city they've done so far.

Keep checking other cities. It could be Leeds first.

Would you be able to provide a list? I can't seem to find one. Thanks

Only capital city you've done? Is your real name "Siri"?
