Apple Maps Adds 3D Models of the Apple Park Campus

Apple has updated a Maps backend with 3D buildings, campus walkways and other information pertaining to Apple Park, the company’s massive new headquarters in Cupertino, California. As first noted by MacRumors, the enhanced coverage of Apple Park includes 3D building models in the standard 2D view, as well as access roads running in and out of the campus, traffic directions, pedestrian walkways and more.

You will also be able to see the pathways, roads, traffic information, and more leading into the campus. There’s a Maps information tag for the Steve Jobs Theater, while the Apple Park campus and other structures don’t have it. We expect this to change over the course of the coming weeks as Apple makes more changes to Maps.

Apple Park is yet to be completed and the company is in the process of migrating its employees to certain areas of the building. It is said that about 12,000 people are expected to make the switch over the course of the next six months, as Apple is yet to provide finishing touches to some parts of the campus.

The company is going to plant nearly 9,000 trees around the campus which will further the company’s environmental initiatives. Apple Park is said to be the brainchild of the Late Steve Jobs, and it has taken a lot of effort to become a reality. This land was previously home to HP’s offices, and the asphalt of the old campus has been replaced with grass and other environment-friendly structures.
