Stonehenge enters into Apple Maps' Flyover collection

updated 11:39 am EDT, Mon April 28, 2014

Apple works on filling in smaller gaps

Apple has added Stonehenge to its Flyover coverage in Maps, users note. The site is one of the smallest in the Flyover library, which enables 3D scenic views based on satellite data. The Neolithic monument dates back to between 3,000 and 2,000 BCE, and is about 8 miles north of the English town of Salisbury. To find it in Maps, users only have to type in "Stonehenge" in search.

Having initially focused on major cities, in recent months Apple has begun concentrating Flyover expansion on less critical areas, such as Berkeley in California. The company is still playing catch-up with Google, which has a much wider swath of 3D scenery thanks to its Google Earth project.
