The future is now (in maps)

Over at Justin O’Beirne’s site ( he has published a great, in-depth comparison between Apple Maps and Google Maps. Its a great read..

The most interesting this about it is not in the comparison in apps but in getting an insight into just how far google are pushing things with their technology and AI. A great deal of their 3d rendering of buildings is automated, Their tagging of bars, and restaurants is automated and the way they bring this information together shows some real smarts both in the product development vision and also their implementation of technology.

It’s quite an impressive read.
