India: India’s Home Ministry recently met Google representatives. It seems that the government is planning to give Google permission to put 3D imagery of Indian metropolitan areas in Google Earth. Many of you may have already seen 3D imagery of metro cities of the US, the UK, Brazil and Australia in the geolocation software. Well, the latest version of Google Earth is designed to provide an immersive 3D experience to the users. For this feature, Google uses imagery depicting a location from a 45° angle, rather than from the top. It is extremely useful in understanding driving directions or to check out a place you’re about to visit for the first time.
