New features for Google Maps

Google has another feature out for us. They’ve made some improvements on Google Maps.
9 new features are now available for you just by clicking on the little green vial on the right in the menu.

You now have the option of dragging and zoom on a specific part of the map just by drawing a box.
The new aerial imagery gives you a high-resolution overhead and rotatable imagery. So you can now rotate your map in every way you wish for.
You can see the exact latitude and longitude next to your cursor and the smart zoom stops you from zooming into an area if the imagery is not available.
The funny one is their “world game” feature where you get your geography knowledge tested by guessing the names of countries from satellite imagery. Good luck on that one!
But the best feature of all is the second search button that makes you return to the top results in the current view, it makes searching for precise things within an area a lot easier.

Try them out, you could be very happy about them.
