Oh google maps, how I love thee

So google maps has added a few new features this week, including coming to close to delivering something I’ve wanted for ages: topo maps. They haven’t quite provided that – instead they’re delivering shaded relief maps – but it’s close, it’s very useful, and it further enhances their already superb map tool. Now please just add topo features as a checkbox under shaded relief, please?

Also be sure to check out major metropolitan areas using the new terrain feature – they give you a cool isometric 3d view of the buildings, styled as if it was an architectural drawing. While I can’t think of a use for this view, it sure is cool looking.
