Google Maps Iterations

Category: Mapping, Showcase

It is nice to see the Google Maps team tweaking and updating the application constantly. The latest addition has been the migration from the text links for Satellite and Map mode, to buttons on the map itself.

My guess is this has been done as:

  • It is in your face. The user is watching the view port, and will definitely see this option. Before it was just a link that the eye could easily ignore
  • Now it is part of the component itself. This is nicer, and means that people who use it as a platform can get the functionality nicely, and again not needing seperate links
