Google, Orange - Google Maps Gets Cleaner Look and Orange 'Areas of Interest' Hotspots

iOS Blog Discussion - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Google Maps developers yesterday introduced some visual changes and subtle navigation aids for both desktop and iOS that aim to make it easier for users to explore the world around them.

?

The most immediately obvious visual changes include the removal of road outlines to make traffic and transit routes easier to delineate, as well as clearer typography for street names, points of interest, transit stations, and so on, making them more distinguishable.

?

Another, less obvious but significant change is the way Google Maps represents high density areas of interest - restaurants, bars, shops, and so on - which now appear as orange shaded hotspots on the map. As the video above demonstrates, zooming into an orange area brings more details into focus, allowing users to tap them for more information.

?The new Maps also gains a more subtle and balanced color scheme to help users differentiate between man-made and natural topographic features, as well as identify places like hospitals, schools and highways more easily.

Google Maps is a free download for iPhone and iPad available on the App Store. [Direct Link]
