Google has rebuilt Maps from the “ground up”, with a new interface, search abilities, and faster performance. Check it out at http://maps.google.com/preview .
Google Maps will be based on vector imagery delivered via WebGL. Maps will also include 3D photographic imagery for some locations and user-uploaded photos.
Google has also updated its mobile apps for iOS and Android, which includes traffic alerts with live accident information and rerouting capabilities. An iPad version will also be released this summer.
