Google Maps big refresh brings high-resolution satellite imagery for most of the world, 45° pictures for 51 cities
What’s a better time to announce a big update to your application than at a time when your closest competitor has just replaced your great app for a sub-par one? Apple’s Tim Cook has just issues an official excuse for the half-baked Apple Maps, and now Google announces that it is making its Google Maps app even better by adding new high resolution imagery for a ton of places in the United States and across the globe.

Some areas get high-res aerial updates and virtually the whole world is gettting high resolution satellite updates.

The update is now up for the taking on Google Play, and you can check out a full list of places getting new and updated imagery right below (and enjoy your Android device, or hope that Apple makes its Maps app better sooner).
