Olympic Park

Google announced Friday that it has updated its Google Earth and Maps applications with new high resolution aerial and satellite imagery for 25 cities and 72 countries and regions. The updates to both apps also include 45-degree imagery for 28 cities around the globe, including 21 cities in the United States and 7 international locations. This tool allows you to zoom in and pan down to a 45-degree angle inside a city to get a closer look at popular points of interest — such as the Trump International Hotel in Chicago or The Frauenkirche in Munich, Germany.

Might we suggest diving in to the London to take a look at where the Olympic Games will be held?
