Google is taking the wraps off some new mapping technology today, and CNET will be there to bring you the news live.

The Google Maps event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. PT. You can go here to find out where that is in your time zone, as well as set a reminder.

In its invite last week , Google said that its vice president of Google Maps and Earth, Brian McClendon, will give a "behind-the-scenes" look at Google Maps, as well as show off "some of the newest technology" and a "sneak peak" at upcoming features.

The event comes just a few days before Apple is rumored to be parting ways with Google as the provider of maps in iOS, and a few weeks ahead of Google's own I/O conference, making whatever is announced all the more interesting.
