Google is continuing with the efforts to make its maps prettier and more useable. The latest change is an enhancement of the quality of more than a thousand 3D landmarks/ buildings around the world. Keir Clarke from Google Maps Mania has created a slideshow to showcase the most attractive landmarks around the world. It uses the Styled Maps feature in the Google Maps API to take away roads and other map features to help the 3D buildings stand out. Enjoy.
