Nokia has added two new features to their Nokia Maps 3D platform.
You can now search for addresses to locate them on the 3D map provided by this service.
In addition you can also share your favorite locations with your friends and family.
Nokia Maps 3D uses a plugin to generate realistic imagery of the globe. In comparison, most other browser based mapping services are rather crude. The 3D maps are however available for limited regions at the moment.
The company said:
We’re sure all of you have already used Nokia Maps 3D to see your neighborhood, the cities you recently visited or those you always wanted to.
A feature you all were asking for was the possibility to search for local attractions, restaurants, and shops, and get directions in the world’s most famous cities in photorealistic 3D views.
Today, we are glad to tell you that this is now possible. And there’s even more!
