Google Maps Plus for the Czech Republic


Can you improve on Google Maps? Well, aMapy think so.

Using Google Maps as the base map aMapy has created an improved map for the Czech Republic. It improves on Google Maps by adding missing footpaths and cycle paths, local points of interest and a number of 3d panoramas.

Google Maps is still very poor at mapping footpaths and cycle paths in most countries. aMapy has added two buttons to their version of Google Maps that allow you to view footpaths and cycle paths in Czech cities.

If you select the 'Objekty (POI)' tab you can also view local points of interest, which include churches, museums, public transit and shopping locations. Many of the points of interest also include 3d panoramas.

Select the '3D Virtualni proh'idki' tab and you can then view the location of a number of interactive panoramas on the map.
