Google To Introduce The ‘Next Dimension’ Of Mapping, June 6


Just a week before Apple is scheduled to take to the stage to unveil its own “mind-blowing” take on ‘Maps’ for iOS, Google has this afternoon announced that it will host a press event to introduce the “next dimension” of its Google Maps service.

The invitation-only press gathering, set to take place on June 6, will see Brian McClendon, Vice President of Google Maps and Google Earth, give “[the world's press] a behind-the-scenes look at Google Maps and share [Google's] vision.”

The event will also give birth to previews of some of Google’s “newest technology”, according to the invite:

We’ll also demo some of the newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually. We hope to see you there.

Apple is highly-expected to publicly drop support for Google Maps at its Worldwide Developer Conference starting June 11, instead announcing a completely revamped, 3D-capable version of ‘Maps’ for iOS, likely to ship with the public release of iOS 6, later this year.
