Google Demoing the Next Dimension of Google Maps on June 6
Apple has decided to introduce its own 3D mapping solution with the release of iOS 6 on WWDC 2012, most likely, to get rid of Google Maps from its platform. When this news hit the surfaces, many tech analysts guessed that now Google will bring considerable changes to boost its Google Maps services for competing Apple Maps in the mobile technology. Today, 9to5Mac revealed that Google is going to hold a special event on June 6 (Wednesday) in which the company will demo ‘The Next Dimension of Google Maps’ just five days earlier than Apple’s WWDC -2012 featuring the next version of iOS firmware-iOS 6.
At this invitation-only press gathering, Brian McClendon, VP of Google Maps and Google Earth, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at Google Maps and share our vision. We’ll also demo some of the newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually. We hope to see you there.
Apple has been using Google Maps as the mapping solution since the release of its original iPhone back in 2007 but when Google launched its own Android firmware for smartphones, Apple began to dig out the ways to throw out Google Maps by introducing its own mapping functionality. Apple has acquired a number of companies related to mapping solutions especially C3 Technologies in this regard. And now Apple is just to reveal its own 3D Maps by launching the latest version of its IOS firmware-iOS 6 within next few days.
Google’s decision to reveal the next dimension of its mapping services seems a well timed effort to fade out Apple’s Maps incorporated in iOS 6 and to tell the users how their mapping solution is still much better than Apple’s announced 3D mapping.Apple, google
