The new maps app for iOS 6 has some very interesting scenes, here is the Hoover Dam -



Are these examples of a technical glitch or are they trying to tell us something?


Less than a day after Apple released iOS 6 and unveiled its in-house maps, users have gone to Twitter and Tumblr to post their most ridiculous findings. When using the 3D feature, some searches end up showing you an apocalyptic rendition of some of the world's most cherished monuments.

The fine folks over at Business Insider have put together a slideshow with the help of theamazingios6maps tumblr page detailing just some of the issues. Among the most hilarious? Road and bridges that are so distorted they look like roller coasters, an airport runway that looks like a quilt, and a very flat Eiffel Tower. Take a look for yourself:

Thoughts?

I heard on the news today that a few towns in England were covered by fog when they took the photos so all you see is fog. They also said a few English towns are completely missing.

Yep, the BBC had something on the site a couple of days ago about how useless the app was for a lot of people in the UK. But there was no mention of things like this in that piece, just that it was very inconvenient and pretty useless for a lot of people.

I think it's obvious that these are errors, or someone's idea of a joke perhaps. But I very much doubt it's some kind of "portent of doom"

I'm not too knowledgeable on the new map thing, but I'm pretty sure google earth 3-D had/has similar issues.

I think it's an issue with putting 2-D images on a 3-D model.

Here is that from another angle.

They are trying to tell us that Asphalt is a thing of the past, and roads of the future will be made out of 100% rubber.

It's their new "3D" mapping technology. It's terrible in every way compared to the google maps they replaced. Go check out the Eiffel tower lol

It would trash my suspension in my car.... BUT I bet that would be fun to drive over! Look no breaks really!! Obviously a glitch in the software.. And a funny one at that! 3D mapping is not THAT easy now is it?

This is generally regarded as a good thing

So what part of the software is unable to handle bridges? These are not photo images like google earth? But software translations from an image data base?

In case they need to brush out any detail they don't want you to see?

The part that applies images to a digital elevation model (DEM) which does not have the resolution to show the bridge.

As far as the software is concerned, the bridge follows the terrain.

Thanks Phage. That makes sense.
So with that in mind, I see the Eiffel Tower as flattened, why not other buildings or structures?

Also found it curious that these items are denoted as "terror targets" by officialdom. My instant response was, oh yeah, they don't want anyone analyzing these structures nowadays.

It seems they have fixed their bug now, so it is what you say. A 2 dimensional flatland to 3D imaging "blindspot".

Ahhhaa Apple FAIL.

We've got a few odd things according to Apple Maps too, like having Kalgoorlie as a residential address listed in Perth. I swear they've taken mining to a microscopic level, cannot see a thing around here to do with mining.

lol

Apple smugly comes up with an Ipod. Seeing dollar signs they make an Iphone and then an Ipad. Everyone is in awe... till google comes along.

"LoOk at our OS. It runs on phones and tablets. It has google maps, and navigation. We sort of implement flash. And we HAVE USB PORTS guys!!!! Also, we're free!"

Apple sternly stares towards the big ominous logo.. GoOgle.

Shaking it's fist and activating "Shake and change it up" they come at google bro.. Ego bruised and kidneys bleeding, Apple walks back into their barn and close the doors...

"IPHONE 4 GUYS!!!!!"

"Wait... IPHONE NEW!!"

"Wait... IPHONE 5 !!!!! It has 4g for reals in Australia you guys, It does!!!!!"

and so the lonely story of how the apple fell from the cart is a short one... because kids these days simply do no have the attention span to accurately follow a .. the end.

It could be a technical glitch considering their Map application is brand new, but since Apple is a tool of the Illuminati anything is possible. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple was 'in the know'.
