Google unveiled a brand new look for Google Maps on Wednesday. Redesigned from the ground up, the new Maps can take you from space all the way inside a building, and everywhere in between.

The map itself is full screen, with a number of small thumbnails at the bottom.Rather than separate search from the map, you can search using a small widget in the upper-left side of the screen. Your last three searches automatically show up (as long as you’re logged in), and like before, you can type the name of a specific location or generic search term in the search box.



Info Cards:Screen-Shot-2013-05-15-at-4.06.32-PM

When you click on a business, Maps now brings up an info card right below the search box. The venue’s address is displayed at the top of the card, along with its hours of operation. To the right, you’ll find a navigation icon for directions, a star icon to save the location for later viewing, and the business’ website URL and phone number.There’s also a Street-View photo icon, as well as the option to look up more images of a specific location.

Better directions:

Maps offers directions for a variety of different transportation options — car, public transit, walking, biking and air — that are displayed both in the search box and on the map itself. The “best” route is shown on the map by default.Screen-Shot-2013-05-15-at-4.18.45-PM
