Petal Maps turns navigation into an immersive and realistic experience
SHENZHEN, China, July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Since its launch in 2020, Petal Maps has grown tremendously now offering 
innovative travel and navigation experiences to more than 28 million users in 
over 160 countries. Maps should aim to reproduce the real world to the greatest 
extent possible, and that is Petal Maps' guiding principle, and being always 
working on.

During navigation, the Lane guidance and Enlarged intersection map displays 
help facilitate safe driving. Road conditions are shown with accuracy because 
of the myriad of inputted data and detailed rendering. Now, Petal Maps offers 
new features such as lighting effects on Dark Mode, 3D landmarks, and more 
using sophisticated technology such as fine-grained rendering. Petal Maps makes 
more realistic and interesting maps available at the disposal of users, 
elevating the navigation experience.

Petal Maps guides you along with vivid lighting effects

Trying to find your way can be tricky. The streets you're traversing probably 
look vastly different from what you're viewing on your phone's screen, and the 
differences in lighting can throw you off. And in the night mode, street lights 
are an integral part of the real world. To maximize the real-world situation, 
Petal Maps adds evening lights to simulate the effects of roads at night, 
including street lighting and building lighting effects and provides a higher 
level of accuracy and map detail.

This feature will come in handy for users as they enjoy a more holistic level 
of detail. For example, when a city's buildings light up, it's signifying to 
the user that it's night-time at the searched location. Through this, users 
will be able to better match directions on Petal Maps to their environment even 
with the change in lighting.

Experience your surroundings in vivid detail with 3D landmarks

Petal Maps built about 26,000 white building models, and 3D effects for 100 
iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, London Eye, and Kuala Lumpur Tower, 
among many others. With Petal Maps' 3D landmarks, users get to view famous 
landmarks within the area in greater detail and can even travel the world in 
the mind's eye, without even having to set foot outside. 3D landmarks reproduce 
real-world conditions of these famous sights in all their complexity, offering 
users greater subtlety and nuance as they find their way.

In addition to 3D landmarks, petal maps also provide a more realistic 3D map 
with elements such as weather, trees, time, and more. The 3D effects bring new 
insights to users, who can identify where they're at or where they wish to head 
to by matching up minute details seen on their Petal Maps display to what's 
before their eyes in real life.

Petal Maps' temperature and precipitation layers and colour classification 
system bring your world to life

What's more, Petal Maps' latest update makes the navigation experience more 
interesting with its new Temperature and Precipitation layers, and natural 
landscape colours for maps.

People often think of way finding or trying to read a map as boring or 
cumbersome. But Petal Maps works hard to restore the real world and improves 
the authenticity and accuracy of maps and navigation to provide an interesting 
experience.

Petal Maps incorporates a rich array of map layers, such as terrain and weather 
to reproduce real-world conditions so users will be able to view weather and 
temperature conditions. This lets users be able to prepare themselves, users 
can directly view the weather conditions along with the destination and along 
the route from the layer without having to open multiple weather forecasts – 
for example, to get their umbrellas out if they're headed to an area with heavy 
rain. Additionally, the added intricacies bring the map to life.

Users can switch to different Weather map layers, such as temperature and 
precipitation, via the layer switch control, located at the upper right corner 
of the Petal Maps home page. From there, you can click Select Layer, then 
choose Weather Layer, and select Temperature/Precipitation Layer to make the 
change.

Petal Maps also applies a colour classification system that is true to 
real-world environments, rendering geographic features like bodies of water, 
green space, and mountains wholly in line with how users perceive their world. 
This makes navigation far more engaging, as you can take in picturesque sights 
of beautiful natural bodies and more from your screen.

Petal Maps' personalised features spice up your navigational experience

The latest update also comes with personalised skins for each of the four 
seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, spicing up your navigation 
experience with variety. To switch to a personalised skin, simply head to My 
Page and go to Settings from there and alter your Display Settings.

If you'd like to know more about your travel habits, Petal Maps' User Travel 
report has got you covered. Petal Maps will generate a report based on your 
user behaviour and periodically send the report to you via push notifications, 
so you'll be able to get a better sense of your travel patterns.

In addition, Petal Maps provides users with Cruise mode. When the speed of the 
Petal Maps homepage is greater than 15km/h and lasts for more than 10s, the 
cruise mode will be triggered. After you enable the cruise mode, you will be 
prompted with a voice message, such as cameras, speed limits, and road 
conditions on the road ahead. It makes navigation easier.

With its sophisticated displays that are intuitive at a glance, the freshly 
upgraded Petal Maps will guide you to the path you need to take in a fun, 
immersive way.

Petal Maps continue to evolve to better provide users with a more immersive 
experience. With immersive rich layers, 3D landmarks, and night lighting, users 
are presented with a more realistic map visualisation experience connecting 
them to the world around them.
