Google Maps gets a big update to terrain, looks even more awesome

Google Maps is undoubtedly on of the best (if not the best) mapping service in the world and when it comes to the various layers Maps offers there really isn’t anyone that can come close.

Terrain is among those layers, which is available both in the Android app and in the website. The Google team has now updated the terrain view in the entire world and it is now much more detailed and differentiates mountains and forests far better than before.

Those of us who use Google Maps frequently have the habit of neglecting the various improvements but the new terrain maps are really hard to miss. Detail is incredible and the once flat-looking surface is now alive with mountains and hills providing a more true-to-life experience.
