Google Adds Winnipeg to High-Resolution Aerial Maps


View Larger Map

Google Maps has turned on 45-degree imagery in 51 cities, including Winnipeg.

On its website Friday, Google said its quest to “create the most comprehensive and accurate map of the world is ongoing, but we’re happy to take a pause and share some impressive progress that our Google Maps and Earth imagery teams have recently made.”

Winnipeg is the only Canadian city so far to see the upgraded imagery, while a handful of U.S. cities and 112 countries/regions, have also seen the upgrades.

Critics may compare the new views to Apple’s “Flyover” effect in Maps, but the Google views are more accurate and rendered at a higher resolutions.
