Google MapsGL Launched and Other Google Geonews

Since the beginning of the year, we heard about geospatial uses of WebGL, and now, Google announced Google MapsGL.

The improvements are simply described as: "With WebGL your maps experience is much better with 3D buildings, smoother transitions between imagery and the ability to instantly “swoop” into Street View without a plugin." Particularly in geospatial, changes are easier to grasp when visualized, here's the short video showing the differences between Google Maps and Google MapsGL. You do need Chrome or the latest Firefox.
