Apple Maps gains Flyovers of Tokyo, Utah's Zion National Park

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Fri June 27, 2014

Feature's coverage still expanding

Apple has extended coverage of Maps' Flyover feature to two more locations. The most important of these is the Japanese capital of Tokyo, where people can now see 3D views of scenery like the Tokyo Tower or the Imperial Palace. In the United States, Maps users can toggle Flyover for the canyons of Utah's Zion National Park.

Two years after the feature's introduction Apple is still working on expanding Flyover to more regions. The company has some distance to go to compete with Google, which has had 3D cities for longer, and offers global 3D terrain via Google Earth.

    Would love to see improvements to their POI database. It's woefully lacking in my city.
