Apple announced a few days ago that Paris was one of the cities available in 3D on its Maps application. But the situation has evolved, with the manufacturer quietly removing the French capital as iGen noticed.
Here is what Apple said on December 15:
Three-Dimensional Cities displays neighborhoods, shopping areas, marinas, buildings and more in greater detail than ever before. Users can now view elevation changes in a city, see more street names, and view custom POIs in cities around the world, including London, Los Angeles, Montreal, ParisPhiladelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Vancouver, Washington DC, and more.
The text has been changed today, with the removal of the mention of Paris. The manufacturer has not given a public explanation for this. Other cities are still listed.
In fact, some parts of Paris are actually available in three sizes. This is for example the case with the Place des Vosges in the 4th arrondissement, with trees in particular.
So there is still work to be done in Paris. Despite this, Apple has been offering several notable buildings in 3D since this summer in a few cities, such as the Eiffel Tower and Mont Saint-Michel. It remains elements here and there, and not complete cities.
