Updated Maps Platform for Windows 10 Creators Update

We have updated the Maps platform for the Windows 10 Creators Update to give our maps a cleaner, more beautiful and realistic look so that it’s consistent between web and UWP apps. We are also making Road view look more authentic by adding layers of terrain, where previously the Road view appeared flat. In addition to a new 3D engine, we have delivered added features that our users requested for certain areas of visual improvements, like styling, offline capabilities, routing and others

Our updated data pipeline paves the way for improvements to our global map data. This also allows us to react more quickly to user feedback (e.g. when you report that a place is missing).  As with any journey, we expect to discover a few bumps along the way.

Please check out the latest in the Windows Maps app and keep your feedback coming!
