Google has just announced that Google Maps in parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa will be getting more detailed maps to make it easy on those who rely on digital travel companions. More detailed ferry routes and transit routes tied into those ferry routes, coast lines, better accuracy for names and locations of major points of interest, and more.

The countries affected by these changes are Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lesotho, Macau, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore and Vatican City. Some of those countries alongside Egypt, Poland and Ukraine will be getting offline support, though Google didn’t go into detail about which out of the former list would be getting them. Find more details about all of the new changes over at the Google Lat Long blog.
