Recently, Windows 10 Maps received an update that added a variety of new features and plenty more functionality for those that use it. In this article, we take a look at what’s new in Windows 10 Maps and these new features provide to users.
First things first, it should be noted that Windows 10 Maps has been designed from the ground up to be supported on any of Microsoft’s platforms. This means that it runs smoothly on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Tablets and even on the Microsoft Xbox One.
Next, let’s take a look at some of the new features in Windows 10 Maps in the latest Creators Update.
Ink on Aerial Mode
With Ink on Aerial Mode, it’s possible to add your own notes, annotations or drawings to Windows 10 Maps. You can add your inked versions of your maps for future reference. Ink on Aerial Mode has lots of functional uses – you could calculate the distance between two locations, you could plan an off-road hike, or even set up a mid-way meeting point between two distant friends.
Create Your Own Collections
With this new feature, it’s possible to make collections of real locations. This can serve two purposes – it can be used to create a to-do list for a day out, or it can be used as a way to look back at and memorize places you visited on a special day or circumstance.
Contribute to Improve the Map Data
Building a worldwide map with 100% accuracy is very difficult, so if you notice any incorrect information for businesses, roads, or geographic locations, you can now use a contribute button to let Microsoft know where things need to be changed.
New Options for Developers
Finally, the new Windows 10 Maps update has added a range of new tools to help developers to create their own versions of Windows 10 Maps. A number of APIs have been added to make customizing the Maps experience easier for others too.
Have you tried out the new Windows 10 Maps update? It’s certainly come a long way since it was first released.
