See More Views With The New Google Maps Widget

Google has updated the design of Google Maps so that users can more easily see and switch between the various viewing options that are available.

Google Maps initially had one layer -- the map. Since then, Google has added many different ways to allow users explore the world, including photos, transit and traffic information, as well as satellite and terrain views. In the latest update, users can more easily see and switch between the various viewing options that are available.

For example, suppose you're planning to meet your friend for a concert at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, and you want driving directions to plan your trip from your apartment in San Francisco. When accessing Google Maps, you?ll see a new widget in the upper right corner that allows you to easily select from either the Maps, satellite or Earth view. In addition, the single widget icon showcases all the different layers available to you, enabling you to see more detailed information just by mousing over the ones you want.
