The big Google Maps update announced at Google I/O 2022 may be the most significant since the introduction of Street View in 2007. But its most exciting new feature, ‘Immersive View’ ‘, won’t just be a boon for tourists – as a photographer I think it also has huge potential for planning photography.

If you know the layout, lighting, and weather conditions at a certain location in advance, you can save time waiting for a metaphorical lightning bolt to happen. And Google Maps Immersive View could also be a great new tool for street photographers.
