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. This type of imagery allows you to explore the sides of buildings and other locations — you can even rotate around a particular point of interest using the compass ring to view it from four different perspectives.”

We took some time to explore Dublin from this alternative angle and embedded some of its best technology-related (mostly) locations below:
