Shortly after new drone footage showed construction crews still hard at work on Apple Park, the company has updated Apple Maps to display flyover imagery, information and data relating to their new Apple Park campus which is said to welcome the first wave of employees next month.
Spotted by 9to5Mac on Wednesday, the mapping information contains both satellite imagery and high-resolution photographs for 3D Flyover views which appear to date back about seven months. Apple Maps show key Apple Park landmarks such as the Steve Jobs Theatre and will presumably show visitors directions to the on-campus Apple Store and visitors centre once unveiled.
The Apple Park listing on Apple Maps is similar to other building listings, with the system aggregating photos and general information about the campus from the internet, in this case user-submitted photos from Wikipedia.
Apple Park shall run on 100% renewable energy and be home to the world’s largest panels of curved glass that will be installed to the 2.8 million-square-foot main building. The 12,000 staff members who will be moving to the campus over the next six months will enjoy a 100,000 square foot fitness centre, with members of the public able to view the headquarters through Apple’s public visitors centre which includes a cafe and Apple Store.
The campus Steve envisioned will be known as Apple Park, and its theater will bear his name. https://t.co/O0BEOdncDq
