Apple's Flyover 3-D view feature in Maps expands to more locations

Apple has once again expanded the Flyover feature of its Maps software to a number of additional locations.

With this expansion, the company has added 3-D views of select American and European territories, including nearly a dozen cities and towns across the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Italy, Puerto Rico, Sweden, and the U.S.

As notedly 9to5Mac, Flyover is newly supported for the following 11 locations: Aguadilla, Puerto Rico; Amarillo, Texas; Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Beziers, France; Brno, Czech Republic; Cittadella, Italy; Clermont, France; Hamburg, Germany; Helsingborg, Sweden;
Liverpool, England; and Odense, Denmark.

The addition of Flyover support for these new locations follows that for 14 locations in Europe, New Zealand, and the U.S. last month.

If you want to experience a bird’s eye view of those locations and more, you can take advantage of Flyover in Apple’s Maps apps for iOS and Mac. Powered by the 3-D mapping technology acquired by Apple with the company’s purchase of C3 in 2011, Flyover allows Maps users to “fly over” supported cities and their landmarks with photorealistic interactive 3-D views that can be zoomed, panned, and rotated.

See Apple’s feature availability webpage for a complete list of locations supported by Flyover in Apple Maps.

Apple Maps has undergone a number of notable improvements since its widely panned initial release with iOS 6 in 2012, with recent ones including enhancements to its community crowdsourcing features and a Web-based profile management tool for business owners.
