Google Maps’s Moat: How Far Ahead of Apple Maps is Google Maps? (justinobeirne.com)

An anonymous reader shares a report: Over the past year, we’ve been comparing Google Maps and Apple Maps in New York, San Francisco, and London — but some of the biggest differences are outside of large cities. That’s a comprehensive comparison. Google Maps, unlike Apple Maps, doesn’t stop at outlining the routes. It offers contextual details such as depiction of buildings and other structures and vegetation. It has captured everything — from dish antennae on top of buildings to golf courses. Furthermore, Google Maps also shows name of the neighbourhood, and has more distinguishable icons and colors. You can glance at a portion of the map on Google Maps and get a good picture of what’s in that place. Apple Maps, on the other hand, looks empty. Like an unfurnished house.
