Google Maps has rolled out a new look and feel, which involves larger maps and “less clutter.”
From the Google LatLong blog:
“With the new look for Google Maps, you can do all of the same things, but without the extra clutter. Find businesses (creamery near palo alto), addresses (6605 Delmar Blvd, St Louis, MO), and more (root beer in sf) from one search box. You might also notice the map is a tad bigger, and that it’s easier to get full screen maps.”
These are minor enhancements, but they do clean up the page a bit. This comes a week after Google Maps integrated walking directions to boost the utility of its mapping product.
