What exactly Apple's Maps app is up against in Google Maps

Apple will route all directions and mapping to its own Maps application, and, man, it’s going to be different.

  • Google plans to continue adding public building interiors—things like train and subway stations, shopping malls, museums, and businesses—but has no intention of mapping home interiors, whether invited or not.

  • Apple’s coming from a different direction, using satellite imagery and vector mathematics to determine some directional and overhead views. But for knowing exactly how to get to that office that’s in a second floor walk-up above that vaguely named coffee shop, it looks like Google Maps is going to be tough to beat for the time being.
