Google to Hold Maps Event Ahead of Apple's WWDC

It makes sense for the timing Google has chosen to unveil what they have up their sleeves in terms of maps industry. Google will hold an invite-only event, on June 6th, to give the press their latest maps technologies.

At this invitation-only press gathering, Brian McClendon, VP of Google Maps and Google Earth, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at Google Maps and share our vision. We’ll also demo some of the newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually. We hope to see you there.

The event takes place ahead of Apple’s WWDC, which to be held June 11th, in which Apple highly expected to reveal their propietary Maps solution along with 3D technology ditching the long-in-use Google Maps since the original 2007 iPhone.

Google’s invitation touted the words”The Next Dimension of Google Maps” seems to point directly to the 3D feature expected to play a major part in Apple’s upcoming Maps service after the company purchased C3 Technologies, a Swedish 3D mapping company in 2010.
