Google Maps changes its perspective on Vancouver

Google Maps has unveiled 45° imagery of Vancouver. This new imagery allows you to explore the dramatic profile of Vancouver’s skyline and to virtually fly over iconic landmarks such as BC Place and Lions Gate Bridge.

To see the new imagery of Vancouver, simply zoom into an area while in Satellite mode. Where Google has 45° imagery available, the imagery will switch from an overhead to 45° angle as you zoom all the way in. You can then pan smoothly across the map to get a richer view of the area.

For the very best virtual tour of Vancouver, make sure to check out the New Google Maps. It has all the things you love about Google Earth directly integrated into the map, so you can travel the entire planet without a plug-in. Or a passport.
