In its quest for world domination, or at least world mapping domination, Google has announced that they have updated their Google Maps 3D imagery to include more than 50 new or updated cities. This is one of Google Maps largest updates to 3D imagery.
It's clear that Google intends to continue to strive to make 3D imagery available for most, if not all, of the major cities in the United States, and it's most likely just a matter of time until they cover just about everything on the planet.
While we would normally advise people to get off their couch and take the time to visit these places to experience it first hand and to also help the local businesses, with the state the economy is in at least we can check out the areas before spending a copious amount of our hard earned cash on overpriced gasoline.
