Improving Google Earth Maps: Better Borders

Google is not only in a constant battle with its rivals with map technology, but also themselves. This is one of the reasons why the company has made a number of improvements to its Google Earth and Maps service. They have been working hard to improve the accuracy when it comes to borders, which as we know have to be detailed and precise.

Since last year Google has been slogging away and have now improved borders for other 60 countries and regions. You do not even have to wait, as the improvements have been updated and ready to view on Google Earth and Maps.

The search engine giant has been hard it for over a year, so just shows how complex the improved updates are. Getting the borders right will now be a great asset to a number of people – especially those who have to study the borders of countries for their studies or their work.

Google has made the new border data available in a choice of detailed levels, this is all dependant on what sort of resolution you are looking for and what your graphics card can handle. Before, borders seemed to be inaccurate as they followed almost straight lines – these improvements now show how a border weaves in and out of a certain area.

Go to Google Earth or Maps now and try and study a few different borders, let us know what you thought of the changes. For more details and a few examples of before and after results visit Google LatLong
