Google Maps has released an update this week that includes 45° imagery of 26 new cities and locations in Europe and the United States, including Dublin City.
Google has been steadily adding new 45° aerial images of some of the world’s most beautiful cities to its ever-improving database since launching the feature publicly in July 2010. The images offer a different perspective, allowing viewers to see the sides of buildings and other objects of interest from all four sides.
“As you may have guessed from the name, 45° imagery is imagery depicting a location from a 45° angle rather than from the top.
