Nokia updates Nokia Maps, adds Israel and other countries
The updated maps have more precise shapes with better details of roads, streams and coastlines. More information about wooded areas has been collected in Russia, Norway and Sweden. For those who like to walk, pedestrian paths now have improved coverage including maps of lesser-known paths. Less populated areas of Greece, France and Ireland are now covered by Nokia Maps. In Italy, Nokia has added the tunnel under Roma Tiburtina and in Germany, the roads to the future main airport in Berlin have already been included.
To illustrate the painstaking work that has gone on in the last 18 months with Nokia Maps, during that time period 133,000 km of roads have been added or updated just in the U.K. alone. Mapping applications received a lot of coverage by us last year, and not all of it was for positive reasons. But hearing about this update has to make Nokia users feel better. Well, except maybe for those in Japan which is still nothing but a black spot on Nokia Maps.
