Google navigates new future for Maps

Tech Industry
You, me, and everybody else, we look at the exact same map. But wouldn't it be awesome if you could build billions of maps? One for every user? And not only that. A map that adapts to what you do. A map built for you. I just moved here about a year ago. This a nice neighborhood and it was an exciting time as I got to explore a new area. And I love exploring. And so, one of the first things I did was search for restaurants. And this is our new search experience. No much as ten pins. All the results are labeled directly on the map. This makes exploring really fast and easy. And the top results, they come with a useful description that gives you a flavor of the place. So, you can make decisions very quickly. No need for cross-referencing. Everything is right there on the map. The Map is user interface. Now, of course, there's this other way how you can find restaurants. You can ask your friends. And now, you can do that directly in the new Google Maps. We added the filter. And now, you see those search results are all the sushi places that my friends have videoed. Like Kichi here that my friend, Stephanie, likes. And these are our new cards. They summarized everything that is important about this place. But earlier, I was talking about imagery, and you saw-- see those three photos? And that left this part. Let's take a closer look. But then, I know my friend's kids, and they will definitely want to explore more. Now, that's going to be really easy because now, all the landmarks you see on the map are related to the landmark-- to the Randall Museum. And so, they are all about kids and museums. You can see the Cartoon Art Museum, you can see the Walt Disney Museum, and when click on that, we get a whole new map with new places to explore. So, we can click on the Exploratorium. And when we click on Exploratorium, another map appears. So, we can keep going and going. This is a great way to explore new places. The Map is the user interface. Great new thing is that we directly compared driving with public transit on the Map. Before, we showed to you the next three departures. But now, we are going to look at every departure, every second for the entire next week, and summarize that for you. And if you want more details, you can use our new schedule viewer. So, let's take a trip. So, this is a really nice 3D model of the St. Peter's Basilica. But can we get the more realistic view? No plug-ins, no downloads, this is the Google Earth experience right here on the browser. That's not all. You see those roll of images at the bottom? These are all the great views of that area. That makes it really easy to explore. And the beauty of this place is really on the inside. So, let's go on a tour. This is a 3D photo tour that is automatically generated from user uploaded photos. So, we'll only get better and better. So, we jump back out. And as we're zooming out, and we are leaving the Earth's atmosphere, you can see the whole world. And those clouds? They are real-time. But we can go further. This is the Earth travelling through space. And you can see the stars in the Milky Way at their right position. And as the sun sets behind the Earth, the night lights come out, and this is the future of Google Maps.
