New Google Maps

Google has launched new Google Maps

Have you seen that Google is coming out with a new concept for the maps? The maps have been working in nearly the same way since the beginning of their inception. It’s time to get more interactive. You’ll be seeing tailored maps and highlighted results due to your search. The results are looking better; the legend which appears on the map and even the directions.

You can have a look at the preview here: there is a video and a few shots, giving an idea of what to expect.

I think it was about time!

To be honest, it reminds me so much of the map around which Mountago is build. I was one of the designers that worked on the User Interface and I’m very pleased to see that our work is a very up-to-date trend.
