The team behind Google Maps have most certainly been busy over the month of October. They’ve added tons of pictures to Street View, and they’ve even gone to the Grand Canyon with Street View cameras strapped to their backs. They are looking to keep that momentum going with the addition of more detailed geography to Maps. This will help users get a more realistic feel for the maps on the service. It will allow them to better find out about the diverse features all over the Earth.

The update to Google Maps shows terrain, color gradations to depict vegetation, and labels for natural land formations. This creates maps that feel more alive. It will help users identify where major forests, deserts, and mountain ranges begin and end while exploring the maps. It is some truly valuable information, and it’s a serious reminder of how seriously Google takes its mapping services.

The first image above shows what Google Maps looked like before today’s update, and the bottom one shows what it looks like now.

These huge updates to Google Maps could not come at a better time, with Apple and its mapping services coming under fire for lack of detail. Google already had one of the most comprehensive mapping services on the Internet, and this just goes one step further in bringing that experience to another level.

The update is available now on desktop browsers. Give it a shot, and see if you can find places you never noticed before.
