Thanks for this I was hoping someone would provide a list., the level of detail really is quite impressive iPhone 4S, bet it looks even better on the iPad.

That's it? How is Google's street view looking now ;)
1) they are two completely different things
2) we are in beta1, do you really think thats it? Its never going to grow? :rolleyes:
3) for the guys that miss streetview theres the app that Google will release.

This raises an interesting question. The 3d view is limited at the moment, I have no doubt that it will be expanded gradually, but how much will it be expanded. Will Apple create 3d maps of every major city and then stop, or will they continue and model smaller cities and so on until the map has total coverage (excluding area 51 etc) of the entire globe?

I really do hope that they let Google submit Google Maps to the Appstore. Because as it is now, Apple's Map is so much worse than Googles.

The Standard look might be somewhat ok over the world, but Satellite and 3D is missing. Basicly no satellite images of Sweden. And even if this is a beta, I highly doubt that they will fill up with good satellite imagery until the release in fall.

It being kind of slow when using Hybrid view I can see it being a beta.

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm? :rolleyes:
Although I'm from the UK, No sarcasm. These 3D maps are absolutely superb.

I haven't spent this long on maps since Google got satellite images over my town. Or when Street view went live.

I though Sydney was the only live place so I've been messing with that for ages.

Please don't feed the troll....;)

Sacramento also has 3D flyover, I'm sure there are more out there!

I am surprised to see New York City absent on the list. Perhaps its a huge work in progress due to the sheer grandness of the city!

I hope Apple actually works on this and brings it to more cities and some African countries. Apple always seems to make the cool things work in two places

What I don't understand is these planes have been flying for years I'm sure (because the company Apple bought had already been doing flyovers). So are they still processing the renderings or are they holding them back initially for some reason?
I'd suspect they're holding them back until the app has the initial kinks worked out. If there's an issue with the way the 3D data is loaded into the app I'm sure they'd like to figure that out with only some of the covered areas released rather than having to rework everything.

It's a small scale rollout people, only in beta.

Thanks for the list! I really love Flyover, its much more useful than streetveiw for me.

They are defiantly leaving lots of places out (for obvious reasons), I found a few videos on YouTube showing places they haven't added yet:

London: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5lM_KefDkg&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Hoover Dam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlelVaxctI0&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Oslo, Norway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSmunh6NIQI&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Venice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNr_ToOFvHI&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Also in this video they say the have over 100 cities mapped: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzNFz-_fMsg&feature=youtube_gdata_player

And for anyone who's interested here is a video of how they make the maps (and it also happens to show they have Kenya mapped): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNemPTHOKWg&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Hmm, I wonder if Google's going to release a standalone Google Maps app for iOS w/ all of the features like it is on Android.

And I wonder if Apple's going to block it from app store :D

Yeah, there's no way they don't have New York all ready to go. This is clearly a list of cities Apple decided to test with rather than a list of what they actually have.

Thats my question.

Am I going to be able to go to my neighborhood in Orlando and see 3D views of my house?

----------

would someone be cool enough to check if Dallas, TX has a 3D view and if so, post a few screen pics of it up here?
Nothing for dallas.

3D mode is not supported on iPhone 4? Sigh, this sucks. Why wouldn't it be able to support 3D? I'm assuming there's not much difference between the 4 and 4S in terms of hardware.

Wow! I honestly have just had my breath taken away. That's fantastic. In what, 5 years time when they have global coverage this is going to be one amazing feature!
5 Years!?

That might be pushing them a bit to cover the whole world. Obviously we are not sure of how much they already have but I wouldn't expect to see the whole world done for a while unless they get a massive fleet of planes and helicopters.

Sorry just re-read my post and made a mistake. I meant global cities, not complete global coverage.
