After Google Maps re-introduced Street View in India, rival platform MapmyIndia announced the public launch of its own 360-degree panoramic street view feature called Mappls RealView. The company said that the company will be available on MapmyIndia's consumer mapping portal Mappls on the web and Mappls App available on both Android and iOS.

MapmyIndia revealed that the Mappls RealView will cover thousands of kilometres in several metropolitan cities and other areas including Greater Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, Goa, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Chandigarh, Jodhpur, Patna, Nashik, Aurangabad, and Ajmer alongside hundreds of towns and highways connecting these cities and towns.

The Google Maps rival said that with the launch of the Street View-like feature, users will be able to get an interactive 360-degree panoramic view of places including tourist landmarks, beaches, residential colonies, office towers, and more.

"Users can experience immersive 3D maps for pan India and detailed interactive 3D models of iconic tourist, commercial and residential landmarks across India. This, combined with Mappls' detailed house-address level 2D maps from MapmyIndia and ISRO's rich catalogue of satellite imagery and Earth observation data which MapmyIndia has integrated, gives a full and immersive Real World Metaverse experience to users" Rohan Verma, CEO and Executive Director of MapmyIndia explained.

"We are excited to give to users in India, a fully indigenous alternative to foreign map apps, that is more advanced in its capabilities and is more valuable for users, while also being fully Indian" he added.

Earlier this week, Google re-introduced the popular Street View feature on Google Maps in India. For the feature, the tech giant has partnered with two local firms - 3D mapping content and geospatial solutions firm Genesys International and IT services firm Tech Mahindra. Initially, the Google Maps Street View feature will be available in only 10 cities. You can read here to find out more.
