3D apple

Following on from my post on Google Street View's ability to step back in time, the much maligned Apple Maps also has a pretty neat trick up its sleeve.
It turns out that you don't need to board a 39-metre long blimp to ogle at the Spirit of Tasmania from up high. The software that uses 3D gaming techniques to wrap acute angled satellite images onto vector shapes works surprisingly well on our local sea front.
I encourage anyone with access to an Apple device to do a fly-by. Luna Park and and the Palais Theatre are particularly worth a look.
