Since Apple isn’t publishing a list of all the 3D cities in its snazzy “Flyover” mode in Apple Maps, we’ve compiled the most complete list available — more than 60 3D cities in all.

Apple has quite a few more 3D cities in the current version of Maps than the meager handful that were available during the beta period. Digging around the app (and the ‘Net), here are all of the 3D cities we’ve been able to find. If you find any new cities or suburbs not on this list, please let us know in the Comments area.

Also worth mentioning: since the app has fairly accurate terrain mapping, you can see a good 3D map of the Grand Canyon in Apple’s Maps, along with other natural landmarks like Niagara Falls. Hoover Dam is also available in full 3D, including all of its structural details.

    There is one location that was done in full “flyover” 3D some time ago, but is not mentioned in your list (although it is mentioned in various comments).

    Indeed, at the end of the list you add

    “Also worth mentioning: since the app has fairly accurate terrain mapping, you can see a good 3D map of the Grand Canyon in Apple’s Maps, along with other natural landmarks like Niagara Falls.”

    But as you imply, these are not “flyover” locations, but just aerial photos projected onto local contours. They can be impressive, but nothing like the detail of flyover.

    But the Hoover Dam was done in full Flyover detail some time ago. The new bridge is particularly spectacular.

    Perhaps we need an extension to the list for “Other Flyover Locations” that are not simply part of an otherwise listed city area (so not the Statue of Liberty)

    1. I found Helsinki, Finland has a flyover (it is very good). Some of the ones on your list don’t show as having flyover’s to me (like Copenhagen, Denmark, maybe I am doing something wrong though).

    1. Auckland flyover is the best flyover made so far. Road signs, gaps under bridges are auto generated. The trees at last look like real, you can see palm stems.
      I don’t think Google will reach that level of detail any time soon

    1. I’m seriously considering that, now that the list is getting so long. Going to be on vacation soon, but this is on my agenda for when I get back!

  2. If you are going to start sorting cities by states, I think you should sort cities by population within the selected state, not alphabetically.

    1. It might make more logical sense that way, in terms of the rules of mapping and whatnot. But we still put the user experience first, and the majority of users still look things up alphabetically.

    2. I sorted the cities by states, alphabetically on Wikipedia page.
      It doesn’t feature Cupertino because it is very close to San Jose.

  3. There is a big extension to the north of Manchester (England) including small towns like Rochdale, Oldham, Bolton, Bury, Heywood, Wigan, Horwich, Leigh, Ramsbottom, Ashton-under-Lyne.

    1. Certainly bridges, gantries and other overhangs are much better.

      But I think that they’ve “just” reprocessed the existing photos. The “Art Africa” advertisement on the town hall extension was early 2012.

      Which suggests that the processing power to build the models is not currently the bottleneck.

      I say “just”, because the processing power that they must be using for that, blows my mind. I strongly suspect that that is why the “outbuilding” next to the North Carolina data centre, has so much cooling around it.

    1. I was checking it today, and I didn’t see anything special with that town unless people want to see an aftermath of earthquake

  4. It seems they have reprocessed Rome as well. Trees and buildings looks nicer especially if you compare it against the screenshot in this page.

    1. Indeed.

      All the columns are now columns and you can see through all the arches.

      Search for Palatine hill and the Colossem for a real treat.

    1. Ah, got it now, huge update to poi’s across the UK too, my town is still not great but way better than before

    2. Look at any town now in the uk, at least in West Sussex were I am there’s at least 3x the number of poi’s

    1. It’s missing a few, but lists

      Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

      which hasn’t been previously listed

    1. Having explored, I’d say this is another step up in quality.

      The handling of the coastline in particular is stunning
